Selene Nelson is an author, journalist and travel writer.


Hello! I’m Selene Nelson, a UK-based author, journalist, and freelance writer.

I studied English Literature at the University of Sussex, and have written for The BBC, The Times, HuffPost, The Independent, New European, SUITCASE Magazine, Town & Country, ThinkProgress, Salon, Food Republic and many other publications.

My first book was published by Penguin Random House in 2019 under a pseudonym (for legal reasons), and my second book, Yes Ve-gan!, was published by Gaia, part of the Octopus Publishing Group in 2020.

I have also appeared on Channel 5, BBC Sunday Morning Live, and The One Show, and have worked with The Co-op to show people how delicious and easy cooking plant-based food can be.

Aside from my own personal writing, I enjoy crafting compelling stories that help my clients both widen and engage their audiences.

I particularly enjoy writing about food and travel, although I’m interested in a wide breadth of topics including health, animal rights, and criminal and social justice.

Work With Me

Freelance writing – I’m comfortable writing about almost any subject, although my passion and expertise lie within lifestyle. I’ve worked with many travel brands, writing about my experiences, reviewing/promoting hotels, and sharing my knowledge.

Brand partnerships – As a former content manager, I regularly work with brands to give them online exposure and help them boost business, and I have a lot of experience creating content that people will share and engage with. 

Copywriting and content services – I have years of experience in marketing, and I’m extremely adept at altering my writing style to target different audiences. If you’re looking for a skilled writer to boost traffic to your site, you’re in the right place!



Whether it’s writing copy for websites and blogs or helping promote a brand through engaging content, I’m proud to have built up a list of happy clients whom I work with regularly. Don’t just take my word for it – here are a few comments from my collaborators:

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for bespoke content from a writer who understands the needs of individual businesses.”
