Welcome to the Cell Phone Novel Network and our movement! For detailed info, read our Network's Guide: https://www.wattpad.com/story/33082871/

The CELL PHONE NOVEL (keitai shousetsu ケータイ小説) is a youth cultural and literary phenomenon from Japan since 2000, that was pioneered in the English-speaking world by @Takatsu in 2008 on Textnovel. Serialized cell phone novels (CPN) feature addictive short poetic chapters of around 100 words and sparse minimalist haiku-like phrasing, vertical white space, and line breaks designed for the cell phone screen.

The fusion of casual Japanese blogging, personal emotional drama, contemporary and controversial youth issues, social media technology and online culture took the Japanese industry by storm, becoming bestselling books, movies, tv series, anime, manga and more.

OUR GOAL:

This is the central hub where we provide resources, promote and support CPN writers and build an inspiring warm community. We aim to:

ー Educate about CPN literary form
ー Showcase and promote Wattpad CPN writers
ー Compile reading lists and feature works
ー Run our own CPN anthologies and magazine
ー Organize events, activities, such as contests, collaborations
ー Present author interviews, forum threads and more.

This account is run by Wattpadders and passionate veteran CPN writers. We maintain a collective anonymity because you are the stars of the show.

Feel free to contact us, follow and join this initiative. We are looking for CPN books, writers, team members and more. https://cellphonenovel.typeform.com/to/T70K8t

SUBMIT WORK via the #CPN hashtag to be included on our profile. Our authors will be given a campaign sticker to place on their covers. Please get to know us: https://www.wattpad.com/story/33082871/
