Here are the shortlisted entries for the short story competition, as voted for by Wattpad readers, including 5 spots for new writers, plus one wildcard entry. The Hot Key staff now has the tough job of whittling this list down to a winner, which will be announced 21 November.

Congratulations to these shortlisted 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.)

The amount of people talking about how disgusted they are they're not on here is quite saddening. Everybody is talented in their own way, so instead of trying to put down those who made it to cheer yourself up, try being happy for them and realizing there's always next time.
