Do you think you’d be up for it?

Of all the wishes I had as a child, being in the world of Harry Potter was definitely the one I wanted the most.

From the magical world of the Harry Potter books to the incredible films, there wasn’t one element of the wizarding saga that I didn’t love with every fibre of my being.

While we do have the Harry Potter studios to explore in both the UK and the US, there’s still a lot to be said for working behind the scenes of the Potter world.

It comes as great news, then, that Pottermore, the news and fan site dedicated to the untold tales of Harry Potter and Co, is hiring writers.
