Volunteer Your Organizational Skills - Maintain Mailing Lists for Power of the Pen

Save to Favorites



Power of the Pen is seeking a volunteer to keep our mailing lists up to date in Constant Contact. The mailing list volunteer will be responsible for reviewing bounced email addresses from each campaign and then determining what action to take: correcting the email address, removing the contact from the mailing list, or replacing the contact with a new contact from that organization.

Our mailing lists are used to keep in touch with coaches, donors, parents, alumni, and other key audiences who support the young writers of Power of the Pen. The mailing list volunteer will have a key role in making sure we can continue to reach important audiences on behalf of the 7th and 8th grade writers who compete in Power of the Pen tournaments!

This is a virtual opportunity that can be done from anywhere in Ohio. Training will be provided. The volunteer must provide his or her own computer and Internet connection. A confidentiality agreement is required.

Please connect with us if you are interested in this opportunity!

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.
