A dark red couch with the words "Writer Therapy, with Sonal Champsee" in coral letters around it.

Hi, I’m Sonal Champsee, a writer and creative writing teacher. I’ve written short stories, essays, novels, plays and some very bad poetry. But I also really like giving people writing advice.

So many of our writing problems come from the way we’ve twisted our relationship with writing in our heads. And I think sometimes, we don’t want to admit to them because what if it means we aren’t really a writer? But the truth is, every writer goes through these things—so it helps to realize that it’s not just you.

If you’d like to submit an question to Writer Therapy, you can contact me by replying to any Writer Therapy email, or by using this form here. I am a real writer and writing teacher, but not a real therapist.
