Are all the things political?

From the Sports Editor 

Between the fiasco that was the vote of no confidence, to the growing fear of nuclear war between North Korea and the US, I completely understand why some of us may be feeling a little “politically fatigued”.

The things are rather lit

Apologies for the title, but I’m trying to be cool. But now that I have your attention, welcome to our Literature edition – it definitely is lit. We have been working on it for quite a while. A literature supplement of this size has been my dream for quite some time and I am immensely proud of every person who had a hand in putting it together.

I’m most proud of the writing competition this week. We received an overwhelming number of entries, showing the importance that literature has in our lives.

My name is Carly. I am a (proud) Slytherin, my patronus is a Newfoundland, and I can tell you where to find all of the fantastic beasts (Newt Scamander included). In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a bit of a Potter Head. Oh, I’m also the Online Content editor at Perdeby. Sometimes I find that I have missed the important things around me. I don’t stop moving. There is always something that needs to be done for the publication, or a Latin text to be translated, or an English book to be read, or a student to tutor, or a History assignment to be written. My multiple to-do lists never seem to be completed. My brain never turns off.
