Meet Elizabeth Ditty


Hi! I’m Elizabeth Ditty. I live in Kansas City, but my mind is often elsewhere. I can be summoned with wine, coffee, or enough time for a power nap. I write things. Nice to meet you!

As a screenwriter, I’ve been an Austin Film Festival semifinalist and three-time second rounder, and I’m so excited to be on the 2020 Bitch List. (It’s a good thing, I swear!) Scroll on down for available projects.
