Posted by Zoe on August 7, 2017 - 1:20 am

Ahh, the end of summer break. When most of us get a small reprieve from the terrible weather and the threat promise of a new school term looms on the horizon. But wait! What would summer be without some Ordinary Wizarding Levels or Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests? Terrible, that's what! Don't worry, HEXians. You can breathe easy, as these tests are back once again! Eager to learn more? Of course you are! Head on over to the Entrance Hall to find out how to take yours today! You won't want to put it off, as I hear there are some wonderful new surprises in store for those who pass!

If you're too young to take tests, don't care what career you end up with, or have finished your exams and are bursting with excitement to do something else, don't worry - there's more. Recently, the Magical Education discussion forum underwent a bit of a revamp. There are all new discussion forums for each year, as well as some fun-filled contests!

But wait, there's still more! Want to be a professor? Amazing, we want you to be one, too. If the idea of teaching a class makes you wiggle around like an excited puppy, then you're in luck! Professor applications for the 2017/2018 term have opened and you can find them here! If you've fancied trying your hand at being a professor but not sure if it's for you, stop by our Freelance Writers Needed thread and fill in for a lesson or two!

Last, but not least, we have the glorious return of TA applications! Want to help out in Magical Education but don't feel up to writing? Do you like grading assignments and being paid to do so? Wonderful! This is the job for you. Applications for TA positions can be found here. We hope to see yours soon!

”Be brave enough to travel the unknown path, and learn what you are capable of.”

The time has come again to head on down to the Roleplay Center, but be sure to bring a mirror with you this time! If you like an adventure, you can embark on a journey to a world lived entirely backwards from your own in A Life Lived Backwards. However, if that doesn't appeal to you, you can always head on over to reflect on the past in Reflections.

Regardless of what you choose, be sure to head on over to our Raffle Thread to check out some gleaming prizes!

The beautiful thing about HEX is that we are a fanbase from around the world. You can visit any given forum and experience people and cultures from the polar opposite side of the globe, or three doors down the street. This month, we're taking that a step further and visiting popular locations around the wizarding world: Belize, San Fran - even our very own Hogsmeade!

That's right! This month, the Arts & Graphics team is all about experiencing the joys of travel, so whether you're a homebody collecting postcards or have wandering feet, now is your time to shine. Over in Graphicsland, we challenge you to create a travel poster that represents your favorite place - Muggle or Wizardly. In Writingtown, we want to know just what goes on in your favorite corner of the wizarding world - because if you're anything like the Weasleys, we just know you'll be getting into your own special brand of shenanigans.

1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points

Posted by Zoe on August 3, 2017 - 10:52 pm

When you hear the word 'beach', what do you think of? Sandcastles and jellyfish? Surfing and jellyfish? Sand in ALL THE PLACES and jellyfish? ...there are a lot of jellyfish. No matter what your thoughts focus on, I bet you never thought that The Quibbler writers would take a trip to one! That's right, this month issue is about all things beachy. What are you waiting for? Grab your copy of The Quibbler and flop down under a large umbrella for a much deserved break.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or owl Zoe, Art, or Nicole.
