About

I’m Ellie Coggins, a copywriter, editor, and UX writer based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

A self-proclaimed “word nerd,” I aim to use my love of words to inform, delight, and simplify big ideas into something that’s easier to understand.

My passion for stories & language started as a child with a love of reading fictional books and continued into undergrad, where I chose to study English literature at the University of Cincinnati. It then took me to Syracuse, N.Y., where I completed my master’s degree at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in magazine, newspaper, and online journalism in the summer of 2019.

Today, I’m the senior associate editor of EC&M magazine, and I run my own freelancing business called Coggins Creative Content. I freelance a wide variety of creative services, ranging from marketing/copywriting, editing, and UX writing. I am also currently a student in the UX Writing Hub’s certification course in UX writing, which I will complete by the end of December 2022/mid January 2023.

When I’m not editing, writing, or pursuing a story, you can find me reading and posting book reviews on my Instagram blog (@ ellieturnsthepage), cooking up new recipes, planning my next trip, or hanging out with my husband and our rescue pup, Addie.
