Mission Statement

We empower young people to find and develop a creative voice that is uniquely their own by engaging students in interscholastic writing tournaments and providing a platform for publication.


Power of the Pen hosts district and regional creative writing tournaments throughout Ohio, culminating in a state tournament in May. Every school year, thousands of 7th and 8th graders throughout Ohio compete in Power of the Pen tournaments, finding inspiration and encouragement to tell their stories.

For more than 30 years, Power of the Pen’s mission has been to empower young writers to find and develop their own unique creative voice. We accomplish this through writing tournaments that provide the incentives of competition and one-on-one feedback for each participating writer. For months before tournaments begin, students practice with their schools’ creative writing clubs to prepare for competition. At tournament awards ceremonies, the shouts and cheers in celebration of excellent writing rival those of the most heated sports competition.

The best student writing from tournaments is published annually in our Book of Winners, which serves as a mentor text for 7 th and 8 th grade Power of the Pen writers. In addition, we provide support to Power of the Pen creative writing club coaches as they prepare their students for tournaments. In a typical year, more than 3,000 writers participate in the program.
