Python Django Basics Test Time Test our Writer model

I can't figure out why this won't pass the test

I'm unsure as to why this won't pass the test

I've been stuck on this problem for a few days and I'm going a little nuts.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

from django.test import TestCase
from .models import Writer

class WriterModelTestCase(TestCase):
    '''Tests for the Writer model'''
    def testEmailTo(self):
      writer = Writer.objects.create(
        name = "jim",
        email = "jim@teamtreehouse.com",
        bio = "help me"
      self.assertIn(writer.email, out.emailTo())
from django.db import models

class Article(models.Model):
    headline = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    publish_date = models.DateTimeField()
    content = models.TextField()
    writer = models.ForeignKey('Writer')

    def __str__(self):
        return self.headline

class Writer(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    email = models.EmailField()
    bio = models.TextField()

    def __str__(self):
        return self.name

    def mailto(self):
        return '{} <{}>'.format(self.name, self.email)

You're close:

1) We're checking that the email attribute is in the output of the 'mailto()' method. 2) You'll want to check the new object you created, which you have named writer.

self.assertIn(writer.email, writer.mailto())

Hope this helps!

I figured it out, Thanks!
