Mark L. Levinson
As a boy in Greater Boston, Mark L. Levinson received much motherly encouragement in tomato-growing, as a previous tenant had left a World War II victory garden not quite overgrown in the back yard. Although that bit of farming left few pleasant memories, Mark spent a year on a kibbutz — an Israeli collective farm — after college. Once more fleeing manual labor, he then brought his typewriter over. For decades he worked as a technical and promotional writer for Israeli software companies; and he wrote a blog, still extant, about the puzzling challenges of technical writing. In his spare time he wrote political commentary, book reviews, humor, poetry, and occasionally fiction. Finding himself a little old to pursue further technical writing jobs, he currently works as a translator and blogs about the puzzling challenges of translating Hebrew to English.

Whether it is a story inspired by his toddler daughter forty years ago, purloining the neighbor's tomatoes or misadventures among the huge egos of university faculty, the struggles and triumphs of the human condition are what intrigue him and what he explores in poems, short stories and non-fiction essays.
