WINTER REGIONAL &
PenOhio Interscholastic Writing Tournaments challenge students to compete both as individual writers, and in teams of six (JV and Varsity).
At each tournament, writers will compose three original narrative works, each in 40 minutes, to prompts not known to them in advance. Each writer is judged in a round against up to 5 other writers from other schools, and judged by a PenOhio coach not known to the writer.
