WE WANT YOU!

My lovely A&Gers, we've run into a bit of a pickle with the mentor program that we implemented last month. We received such an overabundance of interest during September that we realized we couldn't mentor you all by ourselves!

As such, we're hiring some A&G Mentors to step up and teach all they know!


We look for the following qualities in our mentors:
- Patient
- Communicative
- Dedicated to both the A&G Forum and HEX in general
- Committed
- Flexible
- Knowledge of either art/graphics or writing (depending on which you're applying for)


Still with us? Still interested? Awesome! Take a look at the application below...

THE APPLICATION:
ABOUT YOU:
1. Username:
2. What you like to be called:
3. Tell us a bit about yourself:


YOUR SCHEDULE/RESPONSIBILITIES:
4. Average time spent on HEX per day/week:
5. Other HEX or RL obligations?
6. Are you currently applying for or planning to apply for any other positions on HEX?
7. Do you feel that you would be able to handle a mentor position in A&G along with your other obligations/responsibilities? Why?


ARTSY STUFF:
8. Are you applying for a position as a writing mentor or arts/graphics mentor?
9. Why do you think you would make a good mentor?
10. Please submit a example of your work - either a piece of art/graphics or a short piece of writing (1000 words or less) - to give us an idea of your skill level.


APPLICATION ASSIGNMENT (CHOOSE ONE):
Please note: These examples should be unedited by anyone else, meaning you cannot have received feedback on your examples and made edits based on that feedback before submitting them as examples.
For arts/graphics mentors:
Your mentee posts the following graphic and asks what you think needs to be worked on. How do you respond?


For writing mentors:
Your mentee posts the following piece of writing based on the prompt: "You’ve just received a Howler in front of the whole school. What does it say and how does the school react?" The mentee asks what you think needs to be worked on. How do you respond?
Quote:
I walked into the great Hall and waved at everyone. Everyone liked me, I was the most popular girl in the whole school and the prettiest too. I sat down at the Grifindor table and ate bacon a lot of bacon like probably a whol e plate of bacon and then Harry sat down next to me and kissed me and held my hand. "I love you" he said. "I love you too" I said. But Draco was at the Slythern table and staring and he looked mad

Then he walked over. "What r you doing with my girlfriend" he asked Harry
"Go away malfoy" Harry shouted and standed on the table. Draco standed on the table as well and shouted "no, she's my girlfriend and i Love her"

A owl flew in and dropped a red letter on my plate of bacon. Oh no I thought a howler. I coverd my ears. "hOW DARE YOU TAKE MY BOYFRIEND it shouted "DRACO IS MY BOYFRIEND NOT YOURS YOU LEAVE HIM ALNOE"

The whole school stared at me and Draco and Harry stared too and I got real mad. "Pansy, you are mean to me and to Draco and you don't deserv him!" I yelled at her. Everyone cheered and Pansy left the room crying because she was the worst and Harry wanted me to marry him but I told him we have to go to Charms.


If all of this sounds good and you're ready to throw your hat into the ring, we can't wait to see what you've got for us! Please owl your completed application with BBCode turned OFF (this is required, otherwise we cannot copy over your application for review!) to Magenta Comstock. These applications are now ONGOING and you may apply to be a mentor at any time as long as this thread is not locked.

Please note: We may ask for more examples of your work, in addition to what's required for the application. if needed.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in this thread or to owl Katie or Julie.


Best of luck to everyone!

Sounds awesome. A few questions with the writing application.

1. Can the piece we submit be slightly more than 1000 words. I have a piece that I am really proud of that totals about 1100. Don't want to submit that if that isn't acceptable?
2. Can the piece be a fan fiction from something other than Harry Potter or should it be original work or Harry Potter?
3. Can we use a piece that we submitted for a contest on here if the contest has already ended?

Thanks!

That's fine. We just didn't want anything that was like 10,000 words to read or anything lol.

Either! We just want to see a good example of your work.

As long as the contest winners have been announced, that's fine to use.


Just as a note as I'm realizing now that I forgot to include it in my original post, whatever examples you submit with your application should be unedited by other people - meaning you cannot have received comments/critiques on the piece and made edits based on those suggestions before submitting it. We want to see examples of your work without anyone else's influence on the piece.

For that sample, can we use a article or graphic that we made earlier in HEX?

@Seraphine-Duchanness For the example of your own work you can use a piece previously created (if it was created for a contest, that contest's results must already be announced). However, you would still need to respond to the assignment part of the application.

@Katie

Thank you! And my last question:
Do we have a chance to apply for two mentoring positions? For example, if I were to apply for both, would you choose the best one? Or can I be both at the same time?

HI, I sent my application to Magnolia cromstock but it looks like she hasn't been online for a couple days. Would it still be taken into account or would I have to resend it?

No one needs to resend their applications. We are still taking all current applications into account and assessing them. You'll hear from us whether you are accepted as a mentor or otherwise, just so everything is clear for everybody.
