By encouraging people to engage in writing their stories and sharing those stories with the world through our subscription, we will connect readers to new ideas and bridge the gap of knowledge because stories make sense of our world and create a shared understanding. We’ve seen individuals come to our events who have never written a story before, walk away with a professional, published piece and we’re proud of what we’ve been able to do.

What do others say about us? Katy Hammel, who’s first novel recently won the Douglas Preston award for published fiction says, “Plot Duckies gives wanna-be creative writers the structure and support to grow in the craft of composing, editing and publishing short stories and novels.” Jim Tritten, author of  Kato’s Grand Adventure and other award-winning stories says, “Well-structured sjpringboards for and explosion of talent.”

We anticipate growing our events through virtual experiences, offering audio of stories through a podcast, expanding our in-person events across the US, as well as publishing novels by writers in the Southwest.

We have unique events for writers, a free review group for Albuquerque writers, we offer services to writers, and we share great stories with readers!

See how it all started – this was our CEO, and published author, Sonja Dewing, presenting her business journey with One Million Cups at FatPipe ABQ (a coworking space and where our business calls home.) Hear about how Plot Duckies™ started, what we’re working on, and even how we came up with the name!
