On July 14, 2017, the Plot Sisters were asked to speak at the Antioch Writers' Workshop held at the University of Dayton. The topic was how to create and maintain a successful writers' group. Moderated by the lovely Erin Flanagan, the Sisters explained how they formed and fielded questions from the participants as to how they continue to collectively inspire each other on their individual writing journeys.
