Elysa Ayala (1879–1956) was an Ecuadorian writer and painter.


Elysa Ayala was the first woman in Ecuador to write stories about the issues of montubios (poor and simple peasants from the Ecuadorian coast) in her writings, which went far beyond the customs of her time. Despite the sexist and conservative atmosphere in Ecuador during that period, Elysa's early work appeared in magazines of Argentina (Pink Clouds and Revista Argentina), Chile (Events and El Nacional), Uruguay (Forward), Cuba (Hero and Cosmos), USA (America) and Spain (Valencia Voice ).
