Book Banter S3 EP 105: Elizabeth Teets Interview

Hello My Happy People,

Today I am sharing my chat with Elizabeth Teets. In January 2024, Elizabeth released her first book, an anthology, Isn't She Great: Writers on Women-Led Comedies from 9 to 5 to Booksmart. Editing the selection of articles for this book was a project for which she was well prepared. 

Elizabeth started out her career in comedy. For years she wrote her own sets and performed stand up, honing her comedy chops in front of live audiences. She soon expanded her writing portfolio as she began crafting articles for the punk rock satire site, The Hard Times. She would go on to expand her portfolio, publishing articles for various publications including Bunny Ears,  Repeller, Hobart,  Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times.

One of her more popular articles appeared in Catapult, "How to Write About Your Ex". This was not the first time Elizabeth had written about her exes. Before her "ex" articles were published, she had been planning to write a book of essays. Early in the process, she noticed that a bulk of her essays were focusing on past relationships that had gone awry for one reason or another.

Reviewing her work she decided to refocus the project and began to edit out many of the ex essays. But as they were already written, she decided to make good use of the work and submitted them for publication with various outlets. They were a hit with her readers.

To hear her full story check out today's podcast and be sure to check out her pages in the current issue of Book Banter Magazine.
