Welcome! I’m Ellen Fishbein, and I spend most of my time collaborating on writing projects with people from many backgrounds—engineers, CEOs, investors, nurses, lawyers, product leaders, and fellow professional writers. I have an amazing team at my side at www.writing.coach.

Personally, my top 5 writing influences are Bob Dylan, Shakespeare, Bertrand Russell, Camille Paglia and Aristotle. I’m also a longtime fan of Paul Graham, Shane Parrish and Tyler Cowen. If you’re interested, check out my solo essays and/or poems. 🙂

I deliberately maintain a lightweight web presence, but I’m always happy to connect 1:1. Get in touch anytime via ellen@writing.coach.

Let's write!

Praise for my work:

“I take my very hardest essays, and I say, ‘Ellen, you’re responsible for helping me write this.’” – David Perell, founder of Write of Passage (Check out our writing workshop on YouTube!)

“I made a decision to hire a writing coach as part of my urge to become a better writer. Ellen has been a fantastic choice. Please consider her if you’re looking for a coach/editor.” – Ilya Sterin

“There’s nobody I know who understands classical literature, how to provide amazing writing prompts, or how to logically sequence someone’s voice over a one-on-one Google Doc better than Ellen. Period.” – Eric Courage

“Ellen stands out to me because she’s experienced a lot in life, which means she can immediately empathize with not only the message I’m sending, but the person I’m becoming. IMO this identity-level rapport is what separates beginner coaches from professionals. If you work with Ellen, you’ll grow.” Mick B.
