Here are the longlisted entries for the novel competition, as voted for by Wattpad readers, including five spots for new writers, plus one wildcard entry. The Hot Key staff now has the tough job of whittling this list down to a short list of five to be sent to the judging panel. The short list will be announced on the 14 November.

Congratulations to these longlisted writers and also to everyone who participated. You guys are the most positive, supportive group of writers we've ever seen and it's been so great getting to know you and read your work.

We'll keep posting writing tips here: and are happy to answer your writing questions. We wish you all the best of luck with your writing!

(Please note: we won't be revealing which is the wildcard or what entries had the highest votes, so as not to bias our judges.)

There were 18,509 votes during the voting period on the over 300 entries!

This was my dream for a start of writing, win a comp! But congratulations to every who won. I know rejection and not winning is only a step closer to accomplishing dreams, so everyone else who is sad they didn't win remember that! Don't give up! :)
