About

I’m Ellie Coggins, a multimedia storyteller based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

“We are, as a species, addicted to story,” Jonathan Gottschall wrote. It’s one of my favorite quotes and a truth I lives by that keeps me motivated as a storyteller.

My passion for stories 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. When I didn’t have her face buried in a Shakespeare play or poetry anthology, I was usually behind the lens of her Nikon D7100, freelancing everything from engagements to senior photos.

I completed her master’s degree at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in magazine, newspaper, and online journalism in the summer of 2019. Although I started her graduate program wanting to become a writer, she left with a passion for multimedia stories and the way that they engage an audience.

My current role is as senior associate editor for EC&M, a publication of Endeavor Business Media.

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