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.

Paid Stories

Support From Your Audience

Being connected to your readers is one of the most satisfying and rewarding parts of Wattpad. With Paid Stories, your audience can also reward you with monetary support. Paid Stories allows readers to support selected authors by purchasing access to entire stories or paying to unlock portions as they go.

How Does Paid Stories Work?

For full information about the program, you can check out its website here.

For writers though, we offer a coaching program behind the scenes to assist all the authors who join. We identify content that we want to add, contact the writer, and then onboard them to our own community, where they will gain access to additional resources and the support of a coach. You can check that out here.

We’re always looking for new content and stories we think are a great fit for this opportunity. If you want to apply your own story (or pitch us a new one you’re thinking of writing), you can check out this post for more information and the application.

And if you want to join in discussions around program and connect with Wattpad HQ and writers, join us in the clubs here.
