Daniel Barban Levin holds an MFA in poetry from the University of California, Irvine. He is the winner of the Lipkin Prize for Poetry, the Lynn Garnier Memorial Award, and is the recipient of fellowships from The Frost Place, Tent, The Sarah Lawrence Summer Seminar for Writers, and The Community of Writers. His writing has appeared in Provincetown Arts, Bat City Review, The Sarah Lawrence Review, The Westchester Review, The Offbeat, The Fourth River, and The Bennington Review. Nylon called his memoir SLONIM WOODS 9 (Crown, 2021) about being inculcated into, surviving, and escaping the abusive cult that began at Sarah Lawrence College “a disturbing, extremely vulnerable and extraordinary account of what happened to Levin and the emotional and psychological fallout.” He executive produced the documentary STOLEN YOUTH (Hulu, 2023) which the New Yorker described as “…a remarkable work, advancing the prestige true-crime genre’s slow but steady reorientation toward centering victims.” He teaches continuing education students at Stanford University how to translate traumatic memories into powerful writing. He lives and writes in Los Angeles.
