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 Featured

At Wattpad, we love stories. They’re our entire world. That’s why we have a dedicated team who spends time exploring our community, finding hidden gems, and amplifying great writing.

When we come across a story that excites us, we feature it as a Wattpad Pick for a limited time— either in a themed list for up to one month (think: Best of Paranormal or Funny Summer Reads), or on our official Featured List for two weeks—so new readers can discover what we already love about it.

With Wattpad Picks, each story is lovingly hand-picked by us (whereas the Hot list is determined by algorithms).

Think your story should be featured? Tag it #featured.
