Guest Column
A column that features once or twice a month. You write one or max. two pieces about a topic of your choice.


Here are some prompts to help out:
1. Hogwarts, the school:
How do our communities relate to Hogwarts? What would've been your favourite classes and why? (This would be interesting to do from multiple points of views especially for different classes- could be done spanning two editions for example.) If you could change one thing about Hogwarts what would you pick and why? Which professor's room would you like to take a look around in, and what do you think you'd find in there?

2. The nicest thing someone has done for me this week...:
This could be something like focusing on inter-house friendships particularly in the books (but in HiH too). It could also be an ode to Mrs. Norris in the point of view of Filch... This is less "reporting" and more "creative writing".

3. Musings:
Muse about things that could start an interesting discussion: Dursley's and the power structure in their family, interpret a side character, muse about questions you can't find answers to and/or write an ode to your favourite character mentioning only her/his negative qualities.

4. Post-HP JKR. Have you read The Casual Vacancy or The Cuckoo's Calling? Maybe write a review!

Love this idea, so go ahead and do it! Depending on how things go we can make it a 2 parter in April or just put it in every issue you can write something for. Just let me know how it works for you once you talked to everybody :)
