Writer Programs & Opportunities

Writers like you are the heartbeat of the Wattpad community. We work tirelessly to create programs to support creativity and growth, and opportunities to help writers connect their stories with new audiences. From online programs like The Wattys to IRL events like WattCon, there’s something for everyone.

Get Published

Since 2019, Wattpad Books has been making Wattpad writers’ dreams come true. Just like you, we’re excited to see your name on the cover of that next bestseller—and we’re here to help make that happen by making space for new voices, guiding writers to reach their goals, and rebelling against the status quo to propel the industry forward. Our data-savvy editors use their expertise to handpick a balanced list of commercial fiction and diverse, inclusive stories that our readers are already obsessed with, to publish a carefully curated list of 40-50 titles a year.

What can you do to be seen? It’s easy: Keep writing. Got the next werewolf romance just waiting to be written? Write it. Maybe you’re more into stories that reflect real-world growing pains. We want those, too.

The incredible success of books like She’s with Me, The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones, and The Bad Boy and the Tomboy proves one thing: We want to see you shine and meet your goals.
