The village of Hogsmeade is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its first ever literary festival. The mayor of Hogsmeade hopes to make this an annual event, but this decision will be made based on the reception of this event.
From author panels, book launches, interesting stalls, literature awards to a writing workshop, there is bound to be something that appeals to fans of wizarding literature.
This activity will take place over 5 weeks. The festival itself will last 3 weeks (each week symbolising a 'day' of the festival), with the first week of the activity dedicated to pre-festival tasks. You would be put in the shoes of volunteers helping out with putting together the festival during the first week of the activity, and then for the remaining weeks, you would take on the role of festival attendees. The last week of the activity will be dedicated to book trading.
19 - 28 October: Sign Ups
30 October: Week 1 (Day 0 / Pre-festival) tasks released (due by 5 November)
