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 honored to be an alum of The Bitch List. (It’s a good thing, I swear!) You can find a comprehensive list of accolades over at Coverfly. Scroll on down for available projects.
