Welcome to the Short Story profile!

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.


If you would like to have one of your stories featured in our reading lists, consider the following:
• Pay attention to your grammar and spelling to make sure that your story is understandable and accessible.
• Maximum word count we accept is approx. 20k. (boil washing something longer doesn't work)
• 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 form - SUBMISSION FORM - thank you

Please be aware that not all stories will be included.
