Ever fancied rewriting “The Hobbit” in the style of “Harry Potter”?
Well, now’s your chance! If you’re a fan of both Tolkien and Rowling, then this challenge is for you. Tolkien Fansite The One Ring runs a monthly “Rewrite Tolkien” contest, which asks for passages and scenes rewritten in the style of a classic author. The theme for the November contest is Harry Potter.
The criteria for the challenge are as follows:
Using characters from ‘The Hobbit’, come up with a poem or short story in the style of J.K. Rowling – Gandalf’s early years at Hogwarts… Beorn vs. Fluffy… Dobby the house-elf paying his cousins in Mirkwood a visit – It’s up to you.
The contest deadline is 12:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on Monday, November 25th. After the deadline, all entries will be read by the judges and the winning entries chosen.
