Bio

Nona Willis Aronowitz is a 28-year-old writer, editor, author, and cofounder of Tomorrow magazine. Until recently, she was the associate editor of GOOD, where she mostly wrote about her generation’s politics, sex, relationships, and recession-era hustlin’. She curates the Tumblr Minimum Ragers, based on her feature in GOOD about young, downwardly mobile food service workers.

Before GOOD, she was a producer for public radio (first for Farai Chideya’s Pop and Politics series and then on WNYC’s music talk show Soundcheck), and before that, a reporter at the Chicago Tribune. Her writing has appeared in The Atlantic, Washington Post, The Nation, The American Prospect, Slate, Salon, The Village Voice,and The New York Observer, among others. She co-authored the book, Girldrive: Criss-crossing America, Redefining Feminism, with her friend Emma Bee Bernstein. She is also the editor for an anthology of her mama Ellen Willis’s rock criticism, called Out of the Vinyl Deeps.

She graduated from Wesleyan in 2006. She wrote her thesis on 1970s porn movies and their influence on and reflection of the sex revolution and feminism—and got Wesleyan to pay for every porn movie she watched. Which is a fact She is particularly proud of.
