Because of Ellen's excellent communication skill and encouragement, I eventually uncovered the previously hidden material she needed to write a powerful press release. What happened that day was truly magical, and it was the beginning of a new and successful phase of my career as an artist.

I have used Ellen Freed for a major Web site revision and five press releases. Apart from being an excellent writer, she knows how to integrate the written word with graphics. To top it all off, she makes sure that all the content is as close to perfect as possible.

Perhaps one of the most difficult things for an artist to do is to look at his or her own marketing materials from the perspective of potential clients. Ellen Freed recently finessed the presentation materials for a new ASCI project, and it was a pleasurable and enlightening process.

I was so impressed with the way Ellen Freed developed content for my Web site, I recommended her to other artists. She has an innate understanding of what material will be most compelling and effective.

After hiring various writers to help me draft my proposals, I was pleased to discover Ellen Freed. Ellen took the time to look at and understand my work and discuss ways to approach writing about it. She knew the right questions to ask— the ones that artists can’t see for themselves because they are inside the forest and can’t see the trees. This was exactly what I had been looking for in an exchange with a writer. I believe that any artist can benefit from working with Ellen. She’s patient, thorough and makes the writing and new presentation of one’s packaging “complete.” I wish I had found her years ago—I would have saved myself a lot of time, money and frustration.
Lili White, Video Installation Artist

As I moved from one career stage to another, Ellen was instrumental in helping me understand how my work has evolved over the years. She asked the right questions and gently and consistently pushed for clarity. The result is a powerful new brochure together with a focused up-to-date CV—a stellar package that communicates what I can offer as an artist today.
