MuggleNet Academia Lesson 47: "How to Write Like Rowling"

MuggleNet Academia is a comprehensive insight into the literary thematic elements and scholastic endeavors that author J.K. Rowling has provided in her writings of the Harry Potter and Cormoran Strike series.

We look through the entire Harry Potter series for various elements in alchemy, literary components, composition attributes, as well as available classes at Universities and Colleges around the world, and various unique studies that are being implemented today. We also dissect the Cormoran Strike mystery detective series as the books are being released, helping readers understand and appreciate the writings of the modern-day Dickens, J.K. Rowling.

In this lesson, we have asked C. S. Plocher, professional editor who blogs at, and Christine Frazier of the webBlog to join us in opening a new subject, namely, knowing what we do about Harry Potter as a literary artifact. Can we reproduce its success at least in part by imitating how J.K. Rowling tells her seven part epic? Have other authors already done this? Where did Rowling find her tools or are they unique to her?

We hope you enjoy the show. Thank you for listening.
