Hey there, I’m Parrish Wilson. I’m a feminist, non-fiction writing coach and developmental editor. I’m here to help you write your story, weaving together the knowledge you’ve gained and the experiences you’ve lived as a woman to create a book that is a true testament to your life today.
Since 2013, I have coached women to craft their stories and knowledge into meaningful writing pieces. My clients write books that are raw, informative, honest and powerful – a feminist perspective on using improv as therapy, how true self-care can bolster you in the fight for a better world, a guide to escape the unending demands put upon you by the modern world. Books that matter.
Because books can change the world. I approach my work from a lens of personal growth and social change, and I believe in the power of words. I hold a Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing, a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Women’s Studies and a diploma in Child and Youth Work. My studies combine to give a deep understanding of the female experience and how this is expressed through the written word.
(I’m also usually enrolled in a course on writing or editing as I pursue mastery of my craft. Though when one might actually feel that have mastered the art of writing, I don’t know. Aren’t we all kinda signing up for a life of perpetual self-doubt and creative agony?)
Nonetheless, let’s do this. Because we know we must.
The more women who share their stories, the better our world will be. That I know to be true.
If you’ve got a book to write, schedule a complimentary call with me to discuss your project. Not there yet but want to play around with words? Join me for a free writing workshop.
May more women write.
I wanted my book to have a soul and be wildly useful. With spot-on insight and a keen eye, Parrish helped me to dig deeper and find the balance of expertise and vulnerability that I was seeking in my work. I felt an unbelievable sigh of relief when we began working together, knowing that my book would become the best version of itself with her guidance. When it was done, I knew Parrish had helped me make it honest, fun and powerful.Sage B. Hobbs
