Congratulations to all the winners! A job well done! I had written something but never got it in, or finished it for that matter. On another note, today I got my Pottermore email and I am now a proud Ravenclaw!

It’s actually rather worrying how well so many of our authors can channel Tita Skeeter!

Oooops! I meant Rita Skeeter, of course. There doesn’t seem to be any way of deleting these things once you’ve posted.

I’ve just spent a very enjoyable time reading the prizewinning entries and the honourable mentions. Great work everyone, my favourite was the one in second place, but it was a close thing.
