STEFANIE ELLIS

STORYTELLER / IDEA ARCHITECT / WORD MAGICIAN

About Me

.

I like to tell stories. I imagine that my pen is like a magic wand, and I can use words to change things.

Sometimes I write stories that make people think. Other times I write things that make people hungry. Often, I write things that make people cry. On a good day, I can do all three at the same time!

I have written about everything from midwifery to gourmet dorm food, urban farming to Sharia Law.

Sometimes, that magic word wand of mine turns into a pastry brush, and I use it to make things people eat.* So if you need help with cookbook and recipe writing, I can help with that. And when I take my chef’s hat off, I wear a PR hat, so that means I can also help you with PR strategy, campaign design and branding.

What does this mean for YOU? It means there are absolutely no limits, and only possibilities! Tell me what you want, and let’s design your dream.

My Services

Editing

Can't tell the difference between affect and effect? Punctuation got you down? Say no more. Really. Just stop writing, and let me fix it already.

Copywriting, Profiles & Features

Need website copy? Collateral makeover? Brand identity struggles? I can help. I also specialize in personal profiles, essays and nonfiction articles.

Food Writing & Recipe Development

I've been a food writer for 15 years, which includes stints as a restaurant critic and magazine feature writer. I also went to a fancy culinary school, so I know plenty about recipes.

Ghost Writing

Stop boo-hooing about boring copy! Tell me all the stuff you wish you could say, and I'll say it for you. I've penned articles for a famous doctor, and even wrote a book.

PR Consultation

I'm a PR director by day, and a caped crusader for all things good and right in the world of messaging and brand identity by night. Let's change the world together.

Strategy & Campaign Development

If it's a creative campaign you want, I can deliver. My past clients have included otters, ballerinas, jaguars, jugglers, skateboarders and cookies.
