I’m Parrish Wilson, Writing Coach and Developmental Editor for women with words in their soul that need to find their way onto the page. I know the power of writing, it has seen me through my hardest times and brought me great clarity, healing and joy.
After years of fearing I was “not good enough”, the birth of my first son pushed me to finally show up as the writer I had always wanted to be. With those little eyes looking up at me, I knew I had become the ultimate role model and it was my responsibility to show my son that a creative life is a wonderful and worthy life.
Since then I have written online about motherhood, mental health and writing, building a business along the way. I’ve now worked with hundreds of women through my workshops and privately, showing them that they too have the ability to write openly and honestly so that they may inspire greatness and transformation.
I have a BA in Psychology with a Women’s Studies minor and a Child & Youth Worker diploma. I find this background gives me a keen insight into the emotional and psychological experience of the reader and adds great depth to the work I do with my clients.
Currently, I am pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing from The Humber Writing School, and writing my first full-length manuscript, a memoir of my experience with postpartum depression.
My commitment to truth is what inspires me daily to show up for my own writing and my clients’.
If you have a writing goal you’re ready to achieve, I’d love to support you during one of my writing retreats. I also take on a limited number of writing coaching, developmental editing and other creative projects. You’re welcome to book a complimentary consultation call with me so we can chat about your ideas and how we may work together. If you wish, you may, of course, send me a note instead.
And last but surely not least, I invite you to dive into my writing on my Patreon page where I share both memoir and essay style non-fiction pieces.
