You may have heard that “the pen is mightier than the sword,” and there is definitely truth to that statement.
According to ancient lore and legend, dragons were the guardians of the earth’s greatest treasures. Storytellers took this to mean gold, silver, and precious gems, but dragons actually “guard” the earth itself – the greatest treasure is balance, proper use of natural resources, a symbiosis between all earth’s inhabitants – flora, fauna, minerals, and such.
Many of those same legends refer to King Arthur Pendragon as the founder of Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. But “pendragon” is actually an ancient Scots word meaning or “Prince or King holding Supreme Power” or “Head Chief” (pen=head).
“Pen” in this case is my chosen medium, my “weapon,” as opposed to the sword wielded by knights of lore and legend.
PenDragon Literary, then, allows me and the writers in my classes, workshops, and publishing platform to wield their swords (er, pens) to create legendary stories in a variety of genres, and to fulfill their dreams as writers.
The PenDragon Literary knights won’t rescue damsels in distress; all PenDragon damsels and squires will be elegant in their prose or poetry, confident in their storytelling abilities, and influential in their ideas.
