Review:

Each chapter ends with appealing and doable exercises. Levine urges her audience to cast away self-criticism and to write and rewrite, underscoring that this is an enjoyable, important process. An engaging and valuable addition. (School Library Journal (starred review))

“The snippets themselves are marvelously diverse, opening the possibilities for writing in a multitude of genres. By the end of the book, if a reader has faithfully followed her instruction, he or she will be well on the way to becoming a writer.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

Praise for Writing Magic (:)

“What comes through on every page is Levine’s passion for craft. Aspiring writers of all ages can dip in and out of this book, which has the clarity and sparseness of Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Levine is a friendly mentor in these pages.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“A veritable treasure trove of advice and guidance for writers across a range of ages.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“A well-meaning and friendly resource that may well save young writers much time and distress and, perhaps, lead to success in getting published. (Kirkus)

“Have fun, and save what you write!” Those words close out nearly every chapter of this valuable writing guide... Questions from visitors to Levine’s blog are used as springboards, and Levine is generous in sharing her struggles, tactics, and experience. (Publishers Weekly)
