Hello and welcome.

I am the founder of the The Next Big Recognition Spotlight #NBR --- a contest, a community, and a club all rolled into one.

#NBR's mission is to expose undiscovered Authors to the greater Wattpad Community. It serves as a promotional and networking tool to help writers receive recognition on Wattpad.

The contest first began in 2015 and since its inception, has spotlighted over 200 authors---many of them are WP Featured authors and Watty's winners. I encourage you to join our community of amazing writers and excellent reviewers. At #NBR, you rank with Wattpad's best talents.

To submit an application, visit @nextbigrecognition. I will see you there.

As a writer, I am but a mere story teller who strives to create not only unique story arcs, but more so, an experience for my readers.
