You need smart + insightful support to start + finish your book.
When working on a book length project or other sizable writing piece, it’s easy to get stuck when working along. Ideas get jumbled. Writer’s block kicks in. Self-doubt takes over.
Working with a writing coach gives you an opportunity to overcome many of the common barriers we face when writing. Having a professional in your back pocket to talk out ideas and review your pages can mean the difference between finishing a project and it gathering virtual dust on your computer for years to come.
Women come to me at all different stages in their book writing…
…with a simple idea that needs to be developed into an outline,
…with a half finished manuscript that they’re struggling to complete,
…or with a decent draft that needs a thorough read-through and review.
At each of these points, working with of an experienced writing coach can mean the difference between months (or even years) of struggle and a finished manuscript that you can proudly share with the world.
I can't recommend Parrish's services highly enough! She went through my first-draft manuscript with so much care. She took the time to listen to what I truly wanted and the new structure she's given my book has helped me to find so much more clarity with my ideas and express them in a way that will reach my reader. My book truly feels like a book now, instead of a jumble of concepts. I'm ready to start on my second draft with confidence and even joy.Gracy Obuchowicz

When I came to Parrish, I had self-published my book on a shoestring budget but it wasn’t organized in a way that made it digestible for the reader. Working with Parrish, I felt like my ideas, my manuscript and the heartfelt desires I had for my readers were all held so tenderly in her caring and capable hands. My book would not have such depth, clarity and heart if it weren’t for her.Christi Daniels
Parrish stood by me as I opened up my vulnerable space and listened to me when I had doubts. She re-assured me when I was confused and gave me space and time to unfold the truth in my work. I now understand what it means to write from my heart, thanks to her guidance. She’s the real deal when it came down to feedback – no fluff – told me like it was and always gave me a clear reason for her edits and suggestions. Every small celebration with me comforted my uncertainties and fed my soul with inspiration and motivation to continue. Parrish is truly one of a kind!Shalini Gambhir
