Latest Owls:

  • Hannah and her son - Dear Professor Longbottom, I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I was wondering whether the girl Hannah you talked about in your other letter was your daughter, if so, if you have any other children. Wish them a Happy New Year from me please! Sincerely, Sofia
  • Snape on Amortentia - Dear Professor Snape, I'm sorry if this question is too personal, but I've always been curious, what does Amortentia smell like to you? Mine is hot chocolate, the earth after rain, and wet dog. Also, I'm afraid I might be just as forgetful as Neville, but I think I've lost my potions textbook. Could you please tell me the recipe so I can study for our upcoming test? I promise I won't try to brew it. Thank you, A Ginger Gryffindor
  • Overcoming being underestimated - Dear Professor Longbottom, How do I deal with people who constantly underestimate my abilities? Sincerely, Oswin
  • Regarding Fred and George’s fireworks… - Professor Flitwick, What was the Charm Fred and George Weasley used to create a swamp in the hallway when they made their exit? I know you kept part of it because you thought it was a great piece of Charmwork. Is it still there though, after the Battle of Hogwarts? And have you kept any of the fireworks they used? Do you happen to know the Charm for making those? Thank you for your reply, a Ginger Gryffindor
  • Are there wizard veterinarians? - Hello, Professor Hagrid. As a Muggle-born, I do not know much about the Wizarding World. While I have many questions I would like to ask, here is the one I've selected: Are there wizard veterinarians? I know this is sort of your job at Hogwarts, but what about outside of there? Surely, all wizards all over the world need some sort of care for their Hippogriffs and Phoenixes... If there are wizard vets, how would one go about training to become one? Is there a specific school for becoming a wizard vet? Oh, and I'm hungry for details - how does one examine a Phoenix, which is hot with flames? Or how do they protect a Unicorn during surgery from (literally) bloodthirsty people? I hope this letter finds you well, and please respond as soon as possible. Sincerely, Roaring Ravenclaw

Professor Albus Dumbledore

Professor Albus Dumbledore

Albus Dumbledore is precisely where he belongs: in the headmaster’s office at Hogwarts.

I know a plethora of fans (including myself!) really want to hear the end of this joke. -Ashrita
  • As Accomplished as Dumbledore… - Dear Professor Dumbledore, Your Famous Witches and Wizards card amazes me. You've done so much! Now that I'm at Hogwarts I want to know, which extra-curricular activities should I be taking? I want to be as accomplished as you were one day.

Argus Filch

Argus Filch

Headmistress McGonagall has advised the Hogwarts caretaker, Mr. Argus Filch, that responding to letters written to him from students may generate an increased feeling of good will between the two parties.

Professor Filius Flitwick

Latest correspondence:

  • Regarding Fred and George’s fireworks… - Professor Flitwick, What was the Charm Fred and George Weasley used to create a swamp in the hallway when they made their exit?

Do you happen to know the Charm for making those? Thank you for your reply, a Ginger Gryffindor
  • Inquisitive Ravenclaw - Professor Flitwick, What does it take to be a Ravenclaw? The sorting hat described Ravenclaw students as intelligent people who are eager to learn. What happens if you only fit part of the description? For instance you are eager to learn and understand the importance of education but you don't share the extreme intelligence that other Ravenclaws have. Is Ravenclaw a place where students are eager to learn and take school seriously or is it a place where intelligent and sharp minded people study? Inquisitive Ravenclaw

And do you have any tips about warding off would-be admirers? Sincerely, Chased Chaser

Luna Lovegood would never settle down completely, but she does have a homestead and a husband in Wizarding naturalist Rolf Scamander, plus a tow-headed set of twins. A famed naturalist herself, Luna spends her days traveling, tending to her multitude of pets and her dirigible plum trees, and drafting letters to her admirers and dissenters.

Latest correspondence:

  • Mean girl friend - Dear Luna, My mom says that mean girls don't get mean they just get meaner. I know who the popular girls are and one of them is my friend.

  • Uncommon places to study - Dear Luna, Do you know of any good places in the castle to study, aside from the library or our Common Room? Those areas are always too crowded for me to properly get work done. In fact, the whole castle is often too loud for me to tolerate. I figure as a fellow Ravenclaw, you must have had the same problem at some point! Sincerely, Trying to Concentrate

Professor Minerva McGonagall

Professor Minerva McGonagall

Minerva McGonagall, Deputy Headmistress, Head of Gryffindor House, and Transfiguration Professor, has a lot on her plate – but not so much that she cannot respond to the anxious queries of current, former, or present Hogwarts students and their parents. Points will be awarded for intelligent inquiries, while disrespect will cost your House points, and may well earn you detention. While you are awaiting her attention as she takes care of some paperwork, have a biscuit.

Latest correspondence:

  • Want to be an Animagi - Dear Professor McGonagall, I have looked through many books and have not found out how to become an Animagus. As you know, I'm a hard working student and I am willing to make the change... please get back as soon as possible. Ella

Professor Pomona Sprout

Professor Pomona Sprout

In the aftermath of the Final Battle, Pomona Sprout, Professor of Herbology and Head of Hufflepuff, has her work cut out for her. The greenhouses were nearly destroyed, and several plants have escaped. Others have been traumatized, and need soothing, replanting, or feeding. While she bustles about, accompanied by several devoted Herbology students, she dispenses calm, earthy advice, as well as some unique herbal teas, to all who seek her comfort and counsel. Write her care of Greenhouse 6, please, as that’s where she spends the majority of her time.

Latest correspondence:

  • Flowers for a girl - Dear Professor Sprout, I am writing to you in desperation. I really like this girl at school and I want to make a good impression by presenting her with flowers, but I don't know which ones are her favorite. I know that some even have magical properties! Is there a plant or flower that is sure to win her affection? Sincerely, Chuck (in need of luck!)
  • Man-eating plants! - Dear Professor Sprout, I just arrived at Hogwarts and I'm scared to walk outside except for going in between classes. My older brother says that there are man-eating plants and worse all over the place! And even a Willow tree that has killed people before. How can I enjoy the afternoon sunshine when there are bad plants lurking around in it? -Alex

Latest correspondence:

  • Remus Returning - Dear Professor Lupin, Did you know that you were the coolest Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher that Hogwarts has had in such a long time ? I think your lessons were breathtaking! If there was a chance, would you come back and teach again ? We miss the excitement of actually wanting to go to class.

    dear j.k. rowling if your reading this im 10 and love the harry potter books and im waiting for the 8th book . i have a few ideas for the 8th book please contact me on here thank you

    • Amanda

      Leah,nnJ.K. Rowling is not planning to write an 8th Harry Potter book. She is writing a new movie about the Harry Potter world. (There will actually be 3 new movies.) The movie happens 70 years before the books so you will not see Harry and his friends. We do not know when the movie will come out, but it will be likely be in a couple years. I don’t know if you heard about them already, but J.K. Rowling wrote books that are mentioned in the Harry Potter books. Two of them are Harry’s school books called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them & Quidditch Through the Ages. The other is the storybook called The Tales of Beedle the Bard. They are short books, but fun to read. Especially Fantastic Beasts because Harry and Ron write notes about the beasts. Fantastic Beasts is also going to be part of the new movies.nnJ.K. Rowling will not see things you write here. You should write a letter to her. She will probably not write back to you because so many people send her things.nnThis is the address fans should use to write to J.K. Rowling:nnJ.K. RowlingnC/O Bloomsbury Publishing PLCn50 Bedford SquarenLondonnWC1B 3DPnUK

    • Hedwig

      Leah,nnnAs Amanda has said, there will be no 8th book. If you have read the seventh, you will know that it has come to a very sophisticated end as far as the novels will go. JK Rowling will and does provide us with new details, but the world will not extend any further in novel form.nnnIf she were to write an 8th book – which she will not – remember that this is not a series by the fans. Feel free to write fanfiction, but remember that the story is JK Rowling’s, not yours. nnnIf you want to write to her, use the address Amanda has provided you with.

      • Ashley

        Hedwig
        There is an eighth book coming out soon and I don’t mean to sound like I am mean but you might want to be 100 percent sure on something before you say it and I am sure but I also agree with you about it is jk rowlings book not Leah
