The Daily Prophet is pleased to announce a special opportunity for wizarding youth between the ages of 11 and 18 years of age.

  • cleaning charms - (example 9 getting stains out of your school robes without anyone knowing
  • tips on how to skive from class
  • breaking curfew: how too
  • a day in the life of a prefect/professor/school ghost/school protrait
  • Or create your own! If you choose to create your own, please send an owl to the Daily Prophet Editor-in-Chief, Basil Skeeter, with your topic for approval.

Winning entries will receive a 20 galleon scholarship and will be published in the Daily Prophet.

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming, or the moment of truth in your lies.
When everything feels like the movies, yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.
