Do you have theories about the Wizarding world? Or, perhaps you'd like to delve into the ties between the magical world and ours? Would you like to voice your views on Harry Potter related topics to the listeners? If you've answered yes to any of these questions, it's time to take out your quills and/or grab your microphones, and give us your story.

What can I expect for responsibilities?
WWN is a quarterly broadcast. Although that does alleviate the pressure and strict time constraints in comparison to monthly broadcasts, working for the WWN is no walk in the park. All members, before they are a Host and/or a Writer, are a WWN staff, and that means we expect everyone to be an active participant in discussing and deciding the content of upcoming broadcasts. Our broadcasts are produced as a team.

Then, following the planning period, Writers write their segments relatively freely; you get to decide what you write about, and how long it will be. Next, Hosts are responsible for recording and uploading an audio clip of themselves reading out their segments and/or voicing their roles. If you are both a Host and a Writer, you will be carrying out these duties one after the other (with a short break in between) - but never both at the same time.


Do I get paid?
Yes! Like all official HEX and House publications, WWN utilizes the Quill system. Quills are awarded for your participation in every broadcast - including but not limited to, recording a segment, writing a segment, giving input during the planning process, and performing other responsibilities, if applicable.

I'm in! How do I apply?
For this application, you are tasked with creating your own original HP-related mock segment. You may use previously covered themes (such as the Marauders, Magical Creatures, Muggles, etc.); however, the content of your mock segment must be entirely unique and original.

If you are applying for more than one position, please send ALL of the applicable forms in ONE (1) owl to the WWN Account.

So I'm getting around to doing the aplpication and i am wondering. For the writing part of the application, where it says write a script should i write it as a script then? I;'m assuming yes but i want to be sure I do it correctly.

@richard-lestrange

We call it a script because our Hosts read the segments out loud, but your writing does not actually have to be a script. For example, you can write us an article instead, if you'd prefer. Or a report - like a news report - is also acceptable.

The script format is mainly to make things more organized, especially when there are multiple characters appearing in that segment. Like an interview, for example. Or there are lots of sound effects that need to be added in at a later time. But if you have just one person/voice/role, then you can just tell us what you're telling us.

Hope that answers your question.
