Ohio’s Original Interscholastic Creative Writing Program for Middle Schools
Scenes From the SeasonAbout
2,700 young authors wrote more than 12,000 pieces of creative writing
during the 2019-2020 season. These 7th and 8th graders
demonstrated a strong commitment to the craft of writing as they practiced for
tournaments throughout the season. When the pandemic caused shutdowns in March 2020, we continued our regional season online, with students writing from home. Here's a look at just a few moments from 2019-2020.
