Daily Prophet :: August EditionPosted by Mark on August 16, 2019 - 2:16 pm
It is often said that music soothes the savage beast. While we know it works on a Cerberus (really though, Fluffy can't be the only one around), the saying also holds true for those of us on two legs instead of four. Whether you listen to music in order to relax, to accompany doing tedious chores to, or just to belt out your favorite song at the top of your lungs - music holds a sway over us that just can't be denied. Join us in August's issue as we sing along to songs and put on our dancing shoes!

If you have any concerns regarding the Daily Prophet, please contact Janelle, Mark, or Thene. You may also get in touch with Cody, Mark or Steph from Publications Management.

The Grounds - August UpdatePosted by Enyra on August 14, 2019 - 12:52 pm
It's summer time. All the students are sitting at home, impatiently awaiting the start of the new school year. The corridors at Hogwarts are eerily silent, the Main Yard devoid of laughter and chatter. Right? Wrong! During this summer break, the Headmaster had something new in mind and invites you to join the event of the year in our new Roleplay contest Holiday Hooplah.
As always, don't forget to participate in our Bi-Weekly Chat, this month about sports, and fly by to congratulate our Roleplayer of the Month. Make sure to put our Watch Thread on watch in order to be notified of all the news of the Grounds right away.

Tiny this, tiny that, teeny tiny everything! Whether you love the newest 'miniature' phase or you hate it, the simple truth is that the world is now full of things for ants! (Of course, the ant-people really like this.) In hopes of gaining a larger - ... smaller? - audience this month, The Quibbler thought small. That's right! This month's theme is all about tiny things! Curious? Pick up your glasses and get ready to squint your way* through the August issue of The Quibbler!
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or send an owl to Zoe.
* Don't worry, things are actually normal-sized. We're not that bonkers. ...yet.

Publications Management - August UpdatePosted by Morgan93 on August 7, 2019 - 6:03 am
The dog days of summer are here, and The Newsstand is back with assorted fun covering everything from competitions to language to celebrations to liven up your August.
In June, the WWN brought us a broadcast all about contests and rivalries and in the wizarding world. Do you have strong thoughts on the Triwizard Tournament or have a unique technique for dueling? Come share your views in our discussion on competitions. Perhaps while discussing, you notice that everyone doesn't sound the same as you. The Quibbler took July's issue to write about accents, and we're continuing the theme in a discussion on all things pronunciations, articulations, and inflections.
Summer is also a time for weddings. Inspired by the July issue of The Daily Prophet, Witch Weekly has decided to publish a special on weddings. But they need your help to put it together to create the ultimate Witch Weekly's Wedding Bonanza. Participation in any of August's activities will earn you tickets to The Newsstand Quarterly Raffle.
Ever wished that you could be a Newsstand moderator? Applications are now open - but only until August 13th!
