Tanya Levin (born 1971) is a social worker and writer whose 2007 book People in Glass Houses: An Insider's Story of a Life in and out of Hillsong, an exposé of the Hillsong Church, was short-listed for the 2007 Walkley Non-fiction Book Award.
On 1 July 2015, Levin was arrested for trespass while being interviewed outside the 2015 Hillsong annual conference at Sydney Olympic Park. The arrest came amid increased media scrutiny of the conference, after organisers misled the media about the involvement of Mark Driscoll.
