Doing homework at Hogwarts

Welcome to Writing Wednesday! On the first Wednesday of the month, Cask & Quill and its readers take some time to try out a writing prompt. This is a chance to get some practice, share our experiences and encourage one another to write. All experience levels are welcome!


With the arrival of September 1, we’ve been celebrating #BacktoHogwarts week on Instagram and Twitter. I’ve shown you how to get your DIY Hogwarts uniform ready for the occasion. And I’ve been hosting a related challenge on the Cask & Quill Instagram. It’s only fitting then that this month’s Writing Wednesday prompt be part of the celebration!


Today’s Prompt:


Imagine you’re a new student at Hogwarts and you’re writing a short letter home to your family after your first week of the term. 


Use your imagination for this one. Talk about first arriving at the castle, seeing Dumbledore for the first time and all the delicious food you ate at the feast. What are your favorite classes and professors so far? What was the train ride like? Have you made any new friends? You can also switch it up and pretend to be a returning student or even a professor! Use as much detail as you like and have fun with this prompt. 🙂



Write or copy your writing into the comment box below so we can be inspired by you! And/or take it to Instagram! Pair a photo with what you’ve written and share it using #QuillClub. Please tag me @caskandquill if you like!

If you’re not feeling up to sharing what you’ve written, that’s okay! You can still participate by checking in with a comment or sharing an IG photo of your notebook or something. Let us know how it went or what you learned from this week’s exercise!


Happy writing!
