I’m a creative late bloomer who loves helping people find their voice. I host Truthful Type workshops & Writing the Sound writing retreats. My writing workshops and retreats are geared to helping people build the skills and courage to tell their stories. I’ve taught workshops for SFU Writer’s Studio, Royal City Literary Arts Society and other organizations.

What people who have worked with me say:

“Powerful things start happening when you work with Sonja. Sonja’s writing will crack your heart wide open. Her mentorship will help you find your way home.” Christine

“Sonja Larsen is one of the best writing teachers I have ever encountered. She’s that rare breed – both a phenomenal writer and an excellent teacher – practical, down to earth and smart.” Stephanie B

“You have a warm, welcoming, and inclusive manner that makes participants comfortable and creates a good learning environment.”

“I just wanted to say how much I loved the class – the conversation, the teaching material, the research you brought to us, the supportive environment.I will definitely take the next one!”
