Sign Up Your Team for the 2020-2021 Season
In Power of the Pen, students find a place to belong, where they can share and celebrate creative writing with coaches and peers. Power of the Pen writers not only receive individualized support from their school teams, but they also become part of a wider network of nearly 300 schools throughout the state that nurture and celebrate excellence in writing.
Schools may register both a 7th grade team and an 8th grade team, or they may choose to register just one grade level. District and regional tournaments will be held online. Registration for the 2020-2021 season opens September 1. The deadline for the early bird rate has been extended to October 22.
