Do you have a knack for reporting the odd and unusual? Are tall tales your specialty? Are you determined to discover all of the Ministry's deep, dark secrets? If so, The Quibbler may just be the place for you! Each month, you're given a chance to report on the wonderfully weird, the oddly outlandish, and the perfectly peculiar! Of course, it's all must-know information... I mean, why would we ever publish anything but the truth?

The Quibbler is published at the beginning of each month, filled with articles that range from Snape's fan mail to strange Muggle obsessions, and even interviews with some of the wizarding world's better (and lesser!) known members. Every staff member of the publication is given assigned articles, as well as ample time to complete them. The theme changes each month, being announced when article assignments are. Writers are welcome to brainstorm, discuss, and plan however they need in order to get the articles in on time.

Does this sound like something that interests you? Fantastic! In order to apply for The Quibbler, simply owl the application that is located at the bottom of this post to Zoe
with BBCode OFF no later than February 22nd March 14th, at 11:59 PM HEX time. For your sample article, you are welcome to write an article based on a reoccurring article that appears in The Quibbler if you wish, but you are also free to write something different. All work MUST be your own; additionally, please do not send in an article that was published elsewhere. It needs to be written just for this application.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them in this thread or owl Zoe. Thank you!

What does the example article have to be about? Does need to be Harry Potter related?

I recommend looking at previous issues of The Quibbler (located here) to get an idea of what is found in our publication.

I'm a bit confused. The link here sends to previous issues, but none of the links work. I can only look at December... i would like to get an idea of multiple issues but can't find them. Is this a glitch?

In order to give more people a chance to join our team, as many have expressed interest, but been hindered by the deadline falling at a rough time, the deadline for application submissions has been pushed back (considerably) to March 14th at 11:59 PM HEX time.

Sent my application, though I'm not so sure if it will pass but it's worth a try.
