The Wattpad profile for all things short, but not necessarily sweet. You will find a wide variety of stories, from collections to standalone, vignette to novelette, showcased among our reading lists.
We welcome comments to let us know about ideas for anything you would like to see included on this profile and love to hear about any reading lists you've put together, but please do not advertise your own work on the profile.
Check our Profile Guide for information relevant to WattpadShortStory. This profile is run and maintained by a team of Wattpad Ambassadors.


If you would like to have one of your completed stories featured in our reading lists, consider the following:
• Pay attention to your grammar and spelling to make sure your story is understandable and accessible.
• Try to convey feeling and emotion in your story with ample depth and detail.
• Keep your content appropriate for all Wattpadders to enjoy.
• Provide complete story information as we like to showcase stories with clear descriptions, relevant tags, and inspired cover art.
• Stay positive and be kind as we respect writers who respect the Wattpad community and fans.
If you're happy that your story satisfies all of the above, please submit your story to us via the following Submission Form.

Please be aware we are unable to accept all submissions.
