Molly Fisk’s great gift is the ability to communicate and inspire a kind of radiant joy.— Claudia Mills
Welcome! I’m Molly Fisk: poet, essayist, radio commentator, radical life coach. I write as openly and personally as I can about many subjects including love, death, grammar, small towns, lingerie, and the natural world. I was the inaugural Poet Laureate of Nevada County, CA, and an inaugural-year Academy of American Poets Laureate Fellow.
My work is aimed at getting to the heart of who I am. That’s what I want for you, too. A distillation or paring away until you reach your essence. My life coaching comes out of the Radical Feminist Psychiatry and Transactional Analysis traditions, blended by Julia Kelliher into a practice called Skills for Change. I also help poets and short-form essayists polish their work.
Spending time with me will get you laughing, crying, and thinking. Look around the website and see how you’d like to connect.
I’m a certified Skills for Change Life Coach who runs groups and sees individuals, couples, and families privately. I also do mediation work for small organizations. I hold an MBA from Simmons College Graduate School of Management and have run small businesses myself in the retail, financial, and creative sectors since 1978.
