J.K. Rowling shares a new story, for free online. The Ickabog will be published in instalments over the next seven weeks, a chapter (or two, or three), at a time. It isn’t Harry Potter and it doesn’t include magic. This is an entirely different story.
Additionally, she would like readers to submit illustrations for the story. Every day, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw. You can enter the official competition being run by the publishers, for the chance to have your artwork included in a printed version of the book due out later this year. Rowling will be be giving suggestions as to what to draw as the story goes along, but you should let your imagination run wild. When the book is published in November, Rowling is going to donate all her royalties to help people who have been affected by the coronavirus.
