Hogwarts's very own gossip magazine! Submit gossip through the link above - doesn't matter what the rumor is, they'll post just about anything... as long as it isn't -real- news. Save that bullshit for the Daily Prophet. This is a GOSSIP RAG.
The Howler was established in fall of 2012 as an ink and paper production. There was never any serious news, just gossip about everyone who mattered in the school - and some who didn't. Muggle students thought the magazine was a take on Gossip Girl, but Wizard-born students had no idea what could have inspired this. Rumors about who founded the paper swirled through the school, but no one could pinpoint the founder.
In fall of 2016, the Howler stopped printing paper copies and showed up as a paper on Hoots Devices. Students can now subscribe for updates, which get sent as messages straight to their Hoots. Those who have Hoots (and even some who don't) follow the gossip, not because they're interested... but because everyone is afraid of what secret about them will be published next.
