The First Post
Welcome! To borrow from Ricardo Montalbán: I am your host, Mr. Chance, and this is the Knights of the Mightier Pen.
I teach grammar, writing, and literature to middle school lads at the Regis School of the Sacred Heart in Houston, Texas. Other school years, I have facilitated Ludi Fabularum, a story game club for middle school students. This year, COVID restrictions make that sort of activity problematic at best, and so I decided that if I can't share my love of gaming, I'd share my love of writing.
Thus, the Knights of the Mightier Pen.
Each Friday starting 6 November, I shall throw down the gauntlet in the form of a writing challenge. Regis Knights who have chosen to join the Mightier Pen Knights may pick up that gauntlet and complete the challenge. By doing so, a student enters the Hall of Heroes and may even earn the honor of having his work featured in a blogpost.
The Knights of the Mightier Pen gather in the hallowed halls of the Regis School in Houston, Texas, to share their tales and poems.
