About

I am a writer, editor, poet, storyteller, Reclaiming eco witch, mother and grandmother.

I live in Ottawa Canada — on unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin, St Lawrence Iroquoian and Anishinabewaki, (ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᒃ) people as well as innumerable plant and animal beings.

For many years, my company Wordsmith Writing and Editing Services has been hired by NGOs and government to write and edit public health resources on the topics of mental health promotion, tobacco control, healthy weights, cannabis, HIV/AIDS and other social and health issues. In addition to that work, I am also currently writing educational articles for the Canadian Space Agency.

As I ease into my crone years, my writing has become more focused on crafting words that strive to echo the magical and mythic voices of the living land and her beings.

I am Phyllis (Perazzo) Paryas in Kanata at pmparyas@hotmail.com. My phone no(unlisted) is 613-592-5813. I would love to speak with you. I am a parishioner at St John’s, North March(Kanata) where we donated an outdoor labyrinth to the church in 2006.Hope to hear from you.
