Week 1 - Scheduling

Postby Sky Alton » Mon Oct 30, 2017 12:00 am

We know where, we know why and now we need to know how. Every event needs a running order so that everyone knows when and in which location things are going to occur. Certain famous wizarding authors have been known to get very crotchety (and jabby with their quills) when people stumble in half way through their oration about how writer’s block is a muggle myth.

So, this is where you come in! You’ve been tasked with working out a schedule for the entire festival to be used by organisers, guest speakers and attendees alike. You’ll earn 10 points!

Things to Consider:
-The festival is 3 days long
-People need to know where and when as well as what they’re attending so remember to include event names, venues and times.
-Try to tie your schedule in with the theme and motivation you’ve chosen for this week’s other task
-Get imaginative! You’re setting the tone for the entire festival and you want people to be excited about these events, as well as punctual. Panel names are often weird and wonderful and there should be a host of interesting literary folk set to appear.

How you present your schedule is up to you. You could do a glossy, full colour version fit to be handed out to honoured guests or a simpler, practical design. You can present it as a graphic or as plain text. If you choose the graphic route, remember to keep your submission to 600x600 pixels or less as we’d like to be able to share all the schedules here on the forum at the end of the week (if you’d rather we didn’t share your work for others to see, just say so in your email).

Please send all schedules to us at hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces) with the subject line ‘Week 1-Schedule-HOL ID’ by 5th November so we can get them to the magical printers in time. Remember to include your HOL name, ID and house in the body of the email!
