If you want your story to be featured in one of our reading lists, there are some important things you need to know. Read through the submission guidelines carefully before filling out the submission form. This will ensure your story meets our profile's submission requirements.


- Your story must adhere to Wattpad Content Guidelines. If your story contains mature content, it should be rated accordingly. If you are unsure, please refer to the content guidelines.

- All submissions must be in English.

- The length of the book should approximately sum up to 10K words (10,000 words max.). Stories longer than this won't be accepted. After all, they are called short stories for a reason.

- We prefer completed stories. If your story is ongoing it should be updated frequently, reflecting your determination to see the story through to completion. We pledge to keep our readers engaged with carefully curated stories. Ongoing stories that have been abandoned for 60 days will be removed from our reading lists.

- We only accept the first story in a series, and it's very rare that we feature more than one story from the same author at a time. If your story is on our reading list and you want a new story to replace it, submit a form for the new story. If it meets our submission guidelines, your new story will replace the old one.

- Your story must fit into one of the available reading lists featured on this profile. To help you determine if your story is a good fit, see if your story's theme matches any of our suggested tags below.
