Logan Wells

Journalist, Reporter, Writer

United States of America

I am currently receiving my MA in Creative Writing at Ohio University. I graduated with a BA in English from Hanover College with a vast background of various interests. I have explored a wide range of potential career paths ranging from education to public relations to creative writing. The one constant through all of it has been my talent and passion for all things journalism. I have over a decade of various experiences as both a freelance journalist and a full time staff reporter and writer.

Though my greatest strength lies in my writing and creativity, I have experience in all media from video production to social media. I have a deep passion for both sports and arts/entertainment, but have also covered various news stories and done several feature and editorial pieces. I am extremely hard working, self-motivated, have a strong love for knowledge and story telling, and am always looking to learn and improve both my writing and other journalistic skills.

Below are a selection of my clips covering various sides of the journalistic spectrum.
