Erin Khar is a writer and advocate who has established herself as a respected voice in the national conversation about the drug and overdose epidemic. Erin's debut memoir, Strung Out, appeared on lists from Apple Books, Goodreads, SELF, The Rumpus, Bitch Media, and others. Of the book, The New York Times writes, "Khar’s buoyant writing doesn’t get mired in her dark subject matter. There is an honesty here that can only come from, to put it in the language of 12-step programs, a 'searching and fearless moral inventory.' This is a story she needed to tell; and the rest of the country needs to listen.” Her long-running advice column, Ask Erin, lives on Substack and her personal essays have appeared in The Times of London Sunday Magazine, SELF, Marie Claire, Salon, HuffPost, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, and elsewhere. Erin’s essay, “Guilty,” was published in Burn it Down: Women Writing About Anger. She was the recipient of a 2012 Eric Hoffer Editor's Choice Prize for her story, "Last House at the End of the Street," which was published in the Best New Writing 2012 anthology. In 2023, Erin was the recipient of a Walter E. Dakin fellowship from the Sewanee Writer’s Conference. When she’s not writing, Erin is probably watching Beverly Hills, 90210. You can follow her on social @ErinKhar everywhere. She lives in New York City.
