Get Early Access to “Pottermore”: Beta Registration Process Revealed!


The buzz for Pottermore has been insane — completely expected from a JK Rowling project, of course! Pottermore was announced just over a month ago to a substantial amount of fanfare; the project’s aim is to bring the Harry Potter books to life for old and new fans, offering an additional layer of realism and interactivity to the world of Potter. Fans will be able to read through the books online, catching an illustrated and elaborated glimpse into Harry’s world in a new and unique way.

Today JK Rowling and “Team Pottermore” unveiled the sign-up process for the one million fans lucky enough to enter in to Pottermore’s beta — and as expected, it won’t be easy!

Those of you who would like the chance to gain early access to Pottermore must find The Magical Quill, and then submit your registration details. Each day, from 31 July to 6 August, a clue will be revealed here. Solve the clue and you will be taken to The Magical Quill. Be quick, The Magical Quill won’t be there for long and registration will only be open while spaces are still available each day.

Fans will need to seek out the “Magical Quill” via a series of clues posted to over the next week. Once a fan finds the clue and the Magical Quill, registration will be open for that individual. Registration guarantees you access to the Pottermore beta, currently limited to 1,000,000 lucky fans!

We’ll update Lytherus with the clues as they come in. Fans not lucky enough to receive an invite won’t have to wait too long to gain access: Pottermore officially launches this October.
