I write, edit, and create engaging content. I also love to collaborate with other artists and creatives to produce meaningful projects.

Hi, 

I'M ELLEN.  

I’m a writer, editor, and dream-weaver based in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

I'm passionate about helping others believe in their talent, find their voice, and share it in a meaningful way that connects with their ideal audience.

SERVICES

COPYWRITING

Website in disarray? Having trouble talking about yourself? Or maybe you just can't "do the computers." Alright. LET'S GET COZY. While I'm no mind-reader, I'm fairly intuitive and make a pretty good listener. And through a series of life and business chats, I'll help you draw out your  brand's true essence and capture the "sticky" parts of your story. I'll then translate your vision into words and create messaging (AKA "copy") that you can use online to connect with your dream clients and followers. 

Basically, I'll make you sound human. Like a cool, real-deal kinda human, if that's what you're in to. I can even help you design a sweet Squarespace site if the occasion calls for it. 'Cause it's the best. And I'm not super techy and like using things that just work.  

 

EDITORIAL

Much like my approach to copywriting, I love digging into great conversation and interviewing interesting people. I've spent a number of years writing for various magazines, newspapers and blogs on topics ranging from travel and visual art to entrepreneurship and music. I also have "Maximizer" tendencies and thrive on editing other people's work. Especially other people's almost perfect work. 'Cause I'm nitpicky as heck when it comes to grammar, tone, and overall flow. 

MANTRA:

Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.
— Pablo Picasso

While I've always loved collaborating with other artists, I've recently fallen in love with the art of video and film production, especially the creation and styling side of things. I'm particularly fond of documentaries and music videos that educate, entertain, and inspire social change. I also work as a production assistant and transport captain (a strangely satisfying position) on occasion :)

PRODUCTION

 
Every time I’ve worked with Ellen, I was able to breathe deeply knowing the details were noted and the project was in good hands. She also happens to be kind, patient and fabulous. Icing on the cake!
— Jenna MacMillan, director & filmmaker
This gal is a BOSS. I've learned so much about film (and life) from Jenna in the short time since we've worked together.

PHOTOGRAPHY

And sometimes I take photos of pretty things and people being their awesome selves. Sometimes they’re even celebrating stuff. Like Love and other warm and fuzzy things. 

 

These two lovebirds, Jane Allen & Tim Chaisson, celebrated their wedding last June. It was a magical day. 

 

Work With Me

It's now SO important to connect with potential clients and customers online in a meaningful and authentic way. And one of the best ways to do this is to be daring enough to get personal in telling your unique story, your raison d'être.

But let's face it: We can all be a bit too modest for our own good when it comes to telling our own story. Or we suddenly turn into robots, pre-programmed to spew out the same sales language we've all read a million times before. Or we know what we want to say but can't seem to tie it all together cohesively. 

Sound familiar? Fear not, my friend!

I'll help you dig deep and draw out the triumphs and the not-so-glamorous bits of your story. I'll help people fall in *love with the real deal you. Let's have them feel something and get excited about jumping on board with whatever it is you're offering.

*love results may vary

Wouldn't it feel good to let your true light shine?
