Break with a banshee, gadding with ghouls, holidays with hags, travels with trolls, voyages with vampires, wanderings with werewolves, year with a yeti… Life’s certainly never dull for Gilderoy Lockhart.
But, as you may have heard, he isn’t the most original of souls and could really use your help coming up with his next book. (All you need to do is write the thing…he’ll handle the publicity and everything….)
This month (in honour of his 53rd birthday), I’d love for you to write a chapter, introduction or extract of 200 words or more from Gilderoy’s next smash hit. Please include a suitably Lockhart-esque title!
There is no deadline as such for these prompts but if you’d like it to count towards your chance of earning the award for a specific year, we’ll need it by the end of that school year. If you’re comfortable sharing, then post below. If not, email your story to us via hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces). Oh and remember it’s a good idea to check through your piece carefully for spelling and grammatical errors as they make it harder for people to properly enjoy your work.
And a massive thank you to Will Lestrange for the inspiration for this month’s prompt.
