I’m glad you found me. I’m in the process of  of launching an online literary publication and updating this website. Feel free to click around for a sense of my background.  If you are interested in more details, take a look at my LinkedIn page. I invite you to read my blog  and my published work, ask me about workshops or coaching, or to email me with any questions about how we might collaborate.

“Ellen’s special magic lies in her consistent and effortless creation of a safe harbor for writers to craft their art. Her level of expertise is invaluable in helping to refine the skills of fledging writers with positivism and a gentle hand. There’s laughter and tears and shared experiences seldom experienced in a workshop. I’m happily hooked.” Ann Fiegen, writer/workshop participant
