​​​​​The Plot Sisters




{est. 2012}


A close-knit group of six women, all from diverse paths, coming together to inspire, encourage, & support each other on their individual writing journeys.


   Publication and Contest Celebrations

~ Three of our six Plot Sisters have work published in the 2017 edition of Flights, the literary magazine of Sinclair Community College. All six Plot Sisters are devoted to literary citizenship and being part of a local print publication is a joy. Two pieces are fiction: Chris Consolino’s “Ushering Georgia” and Jen Mesaros’  “Value Judgment.” Jude Walsh’s essay “Bloodletting” was also awarded first place in the Sinclair Community College Writing Contest in adult creative nonfiction.
