Elizabeth Passarella

Elizabeth Passarella is a singular voice--a smart, hilarious New Yorker with deep Southern roots. Her essays range from profound to absurd to hopeful, but they always make the reader laugh, cry, and feel less alone. She has spent more than twenty years as a writer and editor in New York, with positions at InStyle, Vogue, and Real Simple. Elizabeth is currently a contributing editor at Southern Living and continues to freelance for many national publications. She has written about food, home design, parenting, and faith, as well as humor columns and personal essays for outlets including The New York TimesParents, Martha Stewart Weddings, Coastal Living, and Airbnb Magazine. Elizabeth's voice is that of the wry best friend you wish you had, a mix of Anne Lamott, Nora Ephron, and Mary Laura Philpott.
