About Us

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. Staff members register for ENGL 2294 Literary Magazine Practicum (or just look for that course in the schedule to learn our current meeting time and location).


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.


Check our Submittable page for the official calls for submissions.

Spring 2021 Meetings

All Online

Due to COVID-19 and Otterbein's community guidelines, we have decided to host all our meetings in a virtual setting through Microsoft Teams. Please email Jeremy Llorence at jllorence@otterbein.edu if you wish to join.


It's never too late to join our staff! Quiz & Quill is a student organization and English department practicum dedicated to supporting Otterbein's dynamic literary community by:

  • hosting open-mics, collaboration and creation events,

  • showcasing student work in our annual publications, and

  • managing the annual QQ Writing & Cover Art Awards. 


We welcome students from all majors at any point in the semester. We hope to see you soon!
