I’m not sure I’ll be able to get it on time for this issue but I’d love to write it anyway:


”The Chaser Race:  Wasted Opportunities for Excitement”


as an article talking about how the Quaffle side of Quidditch matches has largely devolved into a race between the leading Chaser of each team to score goals!  (I think of it as a potential sequel to Cody’s “The Most Important Ball” from a year and a half ago.)

Hello! Would I be able to conduct interviews with fellow HOL members and have them in Serpentimes? How often does an issue of Serpentimes get published. Is it a weekly thing or more of a monthly thing or does it just depend on how many submissions you get? I could conduct interviews with people from all different houses about all different things like a Hufflepuff about Quidditch, a Slytherin about music, a Ravenclaw about favorite ways to travel, and maybe a Gryffindor about how important their homework is. ;) Would this be a good thing for the newspaper? By the way, I am a Gryffindor. Would that be a problem? Thanks!

Interviews are welcome!

We generally put out four issues a year: October, January, March and June.

We encourage submissions from all members of HOL, regardless of their House. The other House newspapers do the same.

Hi, I would like to write an Article titles Finding Your Oasis. It will be aimed at finding ways to de-stress with the new school year starting, I would also like to add an Advance coloring page as one example of de-stressing and or a recipe.

Another possible future article is Entertaining for Slytherins, a column featuring recipes and entertaining ideas for the up and coming Slytherins.
