Taught by Elizabeth Teets, an Oregon-born writer, comedian, screenwriter, and fashionista. Her work has appeared in Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Repeller, Catapult, Reductress, and more. Elizabeth is the editor of the film anthology Isn’t She Great: Writers on Women Led Comedies from 9 to 5 to Booksmart. She lives in Los Angeles, where she is waiting for her group chat to respond.

Learn more about Elizabeth in our Meet the Teaching Artist series.

Looking to bring out your inner Taylor Swift or Carly Rae Jepsen? Some of our most powerful and consuming emotions revolve around “someone that you used to know” or can’t get out of your head. Romantic and platonic love affairs create formative experiences, but writers often feel like they need to hold back when talking about them.

This three-week course teaches writers to break through their fear and take charge of their past experiences. Be it the terror of heartbreak or the horror of having to leave someone at the altar, this class will help you take your inner crazy ex out of the box and your writing from diary entry to a compelling piece of literature that will feel sweeter than revenge.

In this class, you will get:
  • Writing prompts that help you break through emotional or mental blocks.
  • A fun community of fellow heartbreakers.
  • In-class discussion about the best shape and angle for your story.
  • Two chances to have your work critiqued by the group and Elizabeth.
  • Ideas of where to pitch and submit your work.

Class meetings will be held over video chat, using Zoom accessed from our private class page.


  • A generative list of story ideas and publications to submit to
  • A formula for crafting a great ex-focused pitch (personal essay, reported, or first-person reported)
  • An understanding of relationship writing ethics
  • The confidence to unapologetically write about your ex, in *your* own way


"I took the writing about your ex workshop with Elizabeth and was blown away at what I was able to produce after just 3 weeks under her guidance. She immediately had us writing with incredible prompts and offered insightful feedback. From her workshop alone, I was able to produce 5 different pieces that I’ve now published on my Substack (one of them landing me a surge of paid subscribers!) Thank you Elizabeth - you’re the perfect teacher for this class - I’d definitely take it again!" -Chelsea Riffe
