Happy birthday to our beloved queen J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter!

Today, we are celebrating the birthday of the author who changed our childhood forever; who brought magic into our lives and allowed us to discover the true power of literature and friendship. It is also the birthday of The Boy Who Lived! What could be a better day to organize our own tournament for all the Potterheads and let their imagination fly in our Harry Potter fanfiction competition?

No matter if it’s already an existing fan fiction story of yours, or something yet to be written, we invite you to upload it on Sweek with the hashtag #mypotterworld. No limitations – the story can be as long as you want, poetry or prose, about anything related to any of the Harry Potter books! The Potterhead with the best story will receive $100 in Harry Potter goodies of their choice!

But there’s more! Are you wise like a Ravenclaw or brave like a Gryffindor? Show your house pride and help it win the House Cup of Sweek! Add the hashtag of your house to your story and we will add 10 points to the hourglass of your house for every story you upload. The most popular story of each house will get a Hogwarts Scarf + Hat set

Get your quill and parchment out, come to Sweek and tell us your story!
