Have you ever wished you could write with a guide on your shoulder? Someone who understood your struggles with the process, who could encourage you to just keep writing? Someone you could trust to tell you what you do well, what you need help with, and who could talk back to those voices of self-doubt in your head?
I can help.
I love talking to other writers about writing. More to the point, I love helping other writers through their writing struggles: I’ve gone through so many of my own, and I want to share what I’ve learned from that with you.
Here is how I can help you:
- Online Writing Workshops. Registration for my summer workshop has closed. My next class will be through Sarah Selecky’s The Story Intensive.
- Short Fiction Mentorships. Get deadlines, accountability and feedback, but outside a class environment.
- Manuscript Evaluations. Detailed feedback on your work.
If you are looking for my blog, you can find it under Thoughts, above.
Here are some nice things people have said about working with me:
Sonal Champsee has always impressed me with her creative practicality. From the moment I met her, I knew that she’d made a choice – she’d chosen writing – and that there was a great deal of power in her choice…. Her writing shows careful interest in emotional truth, love, communication, and honest human interaction. ~ Sarah Selecky
I had the good fortune of working with Sonal this past summer in a fiction workshop. Good fortune for me, I should say, because she read and critiqued one of my short stories. I discovered that Sonal has an editorial vision unlike any I’ve encountered before. She has the ability not only to see what’s wrong with the ‘big picture’ of a story, but also to make concrete and useful suggestions for how to fix it. And this was true not just of my work, but of everyone’s in the workshop. Her feedback was essential to me getting my story on track ~ Michelle Barker
Sonal is a terrific editor and reader. She’s given me helpful advice at every turn, and has helped me tremendously on many of my manuscripts, including my recent Pushcart-nominated story, “Here Be Dragons.” ~ Chris Tarry
Looking forward to working with you!
