I've been a writer since 1956. I've seen writing and publishing change a lot over the years. I look forward to exploring the ways Wattpad connects people to reading and writing, and may help give them confidence through feedback from readers.

The Positron serial novel I was writing back in 2012 turned into a novel, The Heart Goes Last, which is coming out in September 2015. You can read about it on margaretatwood.ca, where you can also see the cover.
I am also an inventor and entrepreneur. Ten years ago, the LongPen -- the first it's-really-your-signature in pen on paper, but remotely -- made its debut. It is now part of the several different services offered by Syngrafii.com for business applications, and is also the basis for a writer/creator/fan/reader service being built at http://www.fanado.com/.
Fanado.com was used to sign, number, dedicate, and send 50 ebook covers for the Future Library launch with artist Katie Paterson in Oslo, Norway, which you can see at http://www.slideshare.net/OsloBusinessRegion/future-library-oslo. It was used to sign, number and dedicate the prizes for the Wattpad "Scribbler Moon" Future Library contest; you can see the 5 winners announced on Wattpad on the "Margaret Atwood's Dear 2114 Future Library Writing Contest" page, and below. Writers from 32 different countries entered the contest!
My essay about the project, "Future Library," is to the right.
On Wattpad, I wrote The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home, co-authoring with Naomi Alderman. You can find it on her Wattpad page now! http://www.wattpad.com/story/2426517-the-happy-zombie-sunrise-home
