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.

Become a Wattpad Star

You are on your own journey as a writer.

There are markers of where you’ve been—your first 100 reads, your first finished story. The day you ditch your writer’s block.

Becoming a Wattpad Star marks another important milestone on that journey. It recognizes your lasting impact among Wattpad’s best and brightest, and your potential as a lifelong storyteller.

When you become a Wattpad Star, you’ll discover unique opportunities to harness your own potential as a writer, with tips & resources designed to help you maximize and amplify your successes. You’ll also join a community of fellow Stars—a place to collaborate and commiserate with writers who are on their own journey.

Wattpad Stars. Where writers thrive.

By becoming a Star, you’ll have access to a variety of exciting perks, including:

  • A community of fellow Stars, where you can bond over the writer experience and participate in online hangouts.
  • Recognition for all your hard work both on and off the Wattpad platform.
  • The chance to develop your writing skills by gaining access to resources and other tools.
