Hey there. Becks and the City is a RVA culture blog started by Rebecca//Becca//Becks Frankel, a freelance writer and VCU student.

When she isn’t gallivanting down Broad St., poking her head into galleries, she is writing for Shafer Bird, The Commonwealth Times, and Ink Magazine. She also writes fictional stories for herself.

She is vaguely vegan, but has a weakness for desserts and sushi.

She will walk across a desert if it means petting a cute dog.

A favorite hobby of hers is planning hypothetical trips to other countries in her mind.

She is an idealist dreamer with a cynical sense of humor.

Becks fell head over heels for Richmond the first time she set foot on its uneven brick sidewalks. She now knows better and wears flats.
