Last month's issue of the WWN, found here, was all about the New Year and the resolutions that come along with it! For this month's contest, we'll be asking you to dive even deeper into New Year's resolutions and get a few perspectives on the different kinds of resolutions some other widely known faces have set! What are these resolutions? How are they going for these characters? How are the resolutions impacting their lives?

TASK
This is a writing contest. Your task is to write three (3) original interviews with canon characters of your choosing; these interviews should revolve around the New Year's resolutions that each character has made for the coming year (2020). You will be writing as both the interviewer and interviewee in all cases, and your complete entry should be 300-700 words (inclusive). Keep in mind that the questions above are just for inspiration and do not necessarily have to be addressed. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

RULES
- All HEX rules apply.
- Entries should only be submitted when they are complete.
- Your entry should contain three (3) interviews and be between 300-700 words (inclusive) in total.
- Only entries that meet all of the necessary requirements will count towards prizes.
- First, second, and third place will be awarded based on creativity as judged by The Newsstand staff. Fourth, fifth, and sixth place will be randomized from all other qualifying entries.
- If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or owl Raine.
- All work must be your own. Anyone found to be cheating will be immediately disqualified.
- All entries must be submitted in this hidden replies thread no later than
February 28, 2019 at 11:59 PM HEX time.

PRIZES
First Place: Slughorn's Holiday Potions + 1000 HP + 4 raffle tickets

@KatieNumbers
Unfortunately, the canon characters should be Harry Potter canon characters only

does this have to be 3 separate interviews or can you interview all 3 cannon characters at the same time?

Do we interview them as our character, or someone from canon?
