Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Fanfiction Competition!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Fanfiction Competition!

A fanfiction writing competition for all of our awesome Potterheads



Indeed, this is a very Potter competition.


Pages have been turned, books have been bought, tears have been shed, and now it’s time to write!


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child manuscript was published on July 31st, shedding a light on the events (and generation) following that last “19 years later”-epilogue in the final Harry Potter novel. It follows a teenage Albus Potter and his family and friends as they face challenges and villains across time and space.


**If you don’t want to know anything more about the plot, we’d advice you to stop reading right now, as the following might contain minor spoilers.**


Now it’s your turn to write a Harry Potter fanfiction inspired by the themes from the Cursed Child.



How to Participate

Your contribution must be a Harry Potter fanfiction, and you can choose between one of the following options: 


1. Write ships about the new generation


Romantic relationships are a focus of both the actual play and the fans. Many have interpreted the friendship between Scorpius and Albus as gay, while others are totally on board the Rose/Scorpius ship! If you choose this option, you must write a fanfiction which focuses primarily on a relationship between two characters from the new generation. Who that might be is completely up to you :)


2. Write a story set in an alternate present


Another theme of the play is time travel and the consequences of that. Scorpius and Albus experience many alternate presents during their adventure, and now it’s your turn to imagine even more. What would the present for Harry, his family and friends look like if, say, Sirius Black hadn’t died? Or if Harry had gotten into Slytherin? The options are endless!




1st Place will receive a hardcover Gryffindor journal with pocket :)


2nd Place will receive A Writer's Guide to Harry Potter, the 5 year anniversary edition that's been expanded to include references to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!


3rd Place will receive a Slytherin ruled journal with pocket.
