“If there's something that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”

Are you a fan of writing? Do you fancy yourself as the next Rita Skeeter? Would you like the opportunity to share with the Wizarding World the latest, Ministry-approved news?

Whether your answer is “yes” or “no” to any of these questions, you are in luck: the Daily Prophet is searching for new writers! Currently, we have no set number of writers in mind, and we welcome everyone of any and all skill levels. Here is your chance to join our fantastic team working behind-the-scenes (and earn yourself a nifty amount of Galleons for doing so)!

All writers are given two to three weeks to write their articles, and we expect all of them to be submitted on-time. You will most definitely be paid for your services to the public at large.


For previous examples of the Daily Prophet, please click here.

Preferred name to be called:

Good luck people! I personally don't want to apply as I don't read The Prophet, but maybe some others would want to!

Same here! I'm fine if I'm assigned a specific topic to write about, but since we get to decide what to write about it's a bit difficult. I'm really excited for this though, definitely going to apply.

I just applied to be a Magical Archivist, which I kinda want more than this. That closes on 9th October so, if I don't get it, I might apply then. I just don't want to spread myself too thinly.

We often give monthly themes to our issues, so it would definitely be easier. We're looking forward to reading it!

As it's only one article a month with a while to write it, you should be okay. We completely understand, though!

With regards to the articles, what's the percentage of real life/HP related? Just trying to weigh up if I can do purely HP ones if I got on the team.

@Jessica-Hallet That's just from the quote tags. You can ignore that line.

@AccioNox It's a mixture of both. Primarily, we ask for Harry-Potter-related articles, but if there's a Muggle event happening that relates to your article, then feel free to write about that!

@AccioNox Here is your tag, as promised.

We usually write in modern times (so post-Voldy).

Hmm... Is there such thing as a double writer, Breanna?

@AccioNox It would be helpful if you can.

And in answer to the sharepost: it's basically as the DP would be written today.

@Cariad92 If it fits in one of our article sections, then go for it.

@snakesnitch43 Any of them works, though On the Streets may be a little difficult to judge.

If there is, you can have that title, Breanna.
