About Me: Andrew Levine has enjoyed a multifaceted career in the performing arts, working as a musician, arts administrator, educator and producer. Prior to Covid-19's effect on so many arts organizations, he served as the managing director of the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in lower Manhattan. Previously Andrew served as the Executive Director of the York Theatre Company, overseeing productions of the long running Cagney, award winning revivals of Closer Than Ever and Storyville, and new looks at Sondheim’s Saturday Night and Flaherty’s and Ahrens’ My Favorite Year.

At 10 years old he saw his first musical, the 1965 revival of Carousel. Years later he had the privilege of accompanying John Raitt in his musical biography concert and of learning from John’s wisdom and fearlessness.

As an educator Andrew served as the resident musical director at the Savannah College of Art and Design for four years and was an adjunct instructor for the musical theater programs at PACE University and The Hartt School after returning to the Northeast. He recently taught Arts Management for Western Connecticut State University.

Andrew had led several poetry workshops through the auspices of the Ridgefield Library, including two years of Poetry by Heart and the recent Poetry in Search of the Sacred. He is a member of the Connecticut Poetry Society and participates in monthly sessions of the Ridgefield Chapter, led by poet laureate, Barbara Jennes.

Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month.

Tupelo Press provides the canvas; I bring my words, accompanied by a cohort of fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, all ours to edit and submit as we wish. 30/30 poems have been taken by over 90 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

Every dollar gives me confidence to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Give today!
