From ‘Terror at the Quidditch World Cup’ to the return of Voldemort, We’ve seen many notable events in the Wizarding World reported in the pages of the Prophet and the Quibbler. Newspaper cuttings make for very interesting additions to stories as they tell us a lot about the world and the people reading them.
I’d like you to sharpen your reporter’s instincts and produce a newspaper article (200 words or more) about a fictional happening or issue. It could be a normal report, an editorial or an interview. It can be one from ‘the real world’, one from the Wizarding World or one from another fictional world (you could even report the event you wrote about for May’s prompt). Keep in mind the HOL rules though and steer clear of anything too political or graphic. You’ll earn 20 beans for completing this prompt as well as it counting towards the chance to snag our shiny Quill and Ink award.
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.
