About Your Therapists

Writers Group Therapy is a podcast by writers for writers. We cover timeless topics for writers on the craft, important issues related to the business of writing, and interviews with up-and-coming and established writers, agents, and other people who will appear in a writer’s life at some point in their journey.

Rachanee Lumayno and Tom Loveman, the hosts of Writers Group Therapy, also co-lead The Writers Block, a writers group in North Hollywood, CA. The group meets every other week to share pages of scripts and prose, discuss challenges in writing and learning from special guests. (Please note, neither Tom nor Rachanee are licensed therapists. If you’ve got a real problem, see someone who is!)
