Nors was born in Herning, Denmark, the youngest of three children. As a child, she enjoyed making up stories that her mother, a teacher and painter, would write down and read back to her. At age eleven, she began writing her own stories, poems, and plays.
In 2002 she made her debut with the book Soul, published by Samlerens Forlag. Her English-language following began in 2009 when selections from her short story collection, Karate Chop, were published in English. She became the first Danish writer to have a story published in The New Yorker when they printed her story "The Heron" in 2013. In 2015, her short story collection Karate Chop was published in English alongside So Much for That Winter, a join publication of her novellas Minna Needs Rehearsal Space and Days.
