Ellen has focused her publishing career on editorial departments–particularly acquisitions and development as well as managing editorial (the department in which she currently works as the managing editor at Ploughshares).
She spent her time at Emerson College working as Editorial Director of Wilde Press, the publishing house run by Emerson College’s Undergraduate Students for Publishing, and Editor-in-Chief of Concrete Literary Magazine, a literary magazine published annually in print and monthly online. She ushered the journal into the worlds of digital publishing and intensive marketing in order to bring the publication to a larger, technology-loving audience.
