Sarah Ellison is an American writer and journalist.

She spent ten years as a reporter at The Wall Street Journal in Paris, London, and New York. The author of War at the Wall Street Journal: Inside the Struggle to Control an American Business Empire (2010), she was banned from WSJ press conferences for not working on a "specific assignment", though Gawker.com speculated that her exile was motivated by the content of War at the Wall Street Journal.[2]

Prior to her journalism career, she took her degree from the University of Virginia.[3]

Ellison lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and daughter.
