Hi Wattpad Writers,

It's hard to believe we are in the home stretch of the Wattys!

With less than two weeks left, the final day to submit your stories to the Wattys is fast approaching. If your story is eligible, be sure to submit it before September 30th, 2020 at 11:59:59PM EST in order to be considered!

And here's an announcement to make a Wattys win that much sweeter. We've added a new prize: 90 days of Canva Pro for every Wattys winner. Writers love using Canva Pro to create book covers, story illustrations, and promotional graphics. With 90 days of Canva Pro, Wattys winners will get access to premium photos, icons and illustrations alongside some pretty incredible design tools—basically, everything you need to make your story look as beautiful as the words inside of it. Bring your story to life with an eye-catching cover or DIY your own social assets to spread the word about your win!.

We've also partnered with ProWritingAid to help you get your story Wattys ready. ProWritingAid offers world-class grammar and style checking combined with more in-depth reports to help you strengthen your writing. From now until Sept 30th, you can get 40% off a yearly subscription—perfect for double-checking your story before you hit the deadline! You can redeem this offer here.

And last but not least, The Wattys Shorts is coming, celebrating Poetry, Short Stories, and Alternative Storytelling. Full details will be released October 1st, 2020 and submissions will run October 1st to 31st, 2020. Make sure to save this story to your library for future announcements!
