Nora Zelevansky is an author, journalist and editor.
As a freelance writer, she covers all things lifestyle: travel, fashion, wellness/beauty and emergent trends. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, ELLE, Vanity Fair, Town & Country, Travel + Leisure, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, Salon.com and The Daily Beast, among others. She is editorial director for style/wellness hub, Live The Process.
Nora's novels are delayed coming-of-age stories. Inspired by the universal struggle to let go of the past and reimagine oneself again and again, the books — infused with honesty, humor and a bit of romance — follow characters who resist change as they navigate periods of grudging transition: college graduation, the approach to 30, grief and acceptance.
Nora uses her expertise to help authors conceive, propose, write and edit their manuscripts. She has worked with publishers including Hachette, Penguin Random House and Macmillan, among others.
She also works with brands to evolve and market their voices, including Bugaboo, Salt, LoveShackFancy and more.
Nora attended New York City’s Calhoun School, then Scripps College of The Claremont Colleges in California. After graduation, she moved to LA to work in film and then in politics, before transitioning into writing.
She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two kids and enormous cat, Waldo.
