Quiz & Quill is Otterbein's student literary organization. Our spring magazine and chapbooks have featured the best poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, dramatic writing, and art by Otterbein students since 1919. We also manage submissions for the annual Quiz & Quill Writing Awards and host numerous open mics, readings, and workshops throughout the school year.
It’s easy to join our staff: just come to the next meeting or check out our Facebook page to get invitations to events, writing prompts for publications, etc.
