NOTE: THIS POSITION HAS NOW BEEN CLOSED. Pottermore News is very sorry for the inconvenience.
Pottermore News is seeking a volunteer news writer.
Pottermore News is an ever-growing site and continues to reach new shores everyday. To accommodate our rapid growth, we are seeking writers for the site. Specifically, we are seeking a news reporter for a voluntary position.
The successful applicant will have to report on Pottermore related news that will be published on the site. They will be using WordPress software (on the Internet). Along with Pottermore news, they will have to report on important, newsworthy J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter stories. When any news is announced, the reporter will have to write a post for the site as soon as possible. On average, we publish three news posts a day.
Applicants must have writing experience and knowledge in grammar. Though it is not a requirement, we are looking for a person with experience in news reporting. If you are an excellent writer and news reporter, we suggest you apply.
As it is one of the job requirements, we are looking for someone who knows Harry Potter – someone who has read the series and is a fan. You must have a Pottermore account and be familiar with the site. If you are a regular Pottermore user that’s even better. We don’t want anyone who isn’t interested in Harry Potter, because if you aren’t and working for us, it won’t be any fun, right?
As any news writer, the news writer will have to find the story sometimes; the story will not always come to you..
Good luck to all applicants.
-Must speak and write in the English language
-Must be able to write during the day
-Must be somewhat familiar with WordPress.
-Must have a Pottermore account
-Familiarity with Harry Potter – book, films, etc.

We will be accepting applications until the position is filled.
While this is not a paid position, we are positive that you will receive substantial satisfaction in writing and posting on this site. At listing, this position is voluntary, however, a salary may be negotiable in the future.
