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.

Attend WattCon

WattCon brings the Wattpad community together to celebrate stories and the people who tell them. It’s how we connect, inform, and empower our most engaged storytellers. It’s an in-person day-long event of opportunity and learning.

What makes WattCon?

Panels featuring up-and-coming writers, Stars, and industry professionals

From mastering the art of storytelling and growing your audience to learning how to take your story to the next level with our entertainment partners, our programming is tailored to what writers want to know. Got topics or ideas you want covered at the next WattCon? Tell us.

Storytelling workshops that encourage writers to hone their craft

Writing workshops give our writers the chance to learn from the pros – whether it’s tips on plotting a story or preparing one for publication, there’s a choice of educational experiences at WattCon.

Opportunities for writers to share, collaborate and connect

Wattpadders are better together. And Wattpad is the world’s largest social storytelling platform. That’s what makes WattCon special—it’s a chance to meet, converse and collaborate with Wattpad community members from around the world.

Interactive live stream that engages Wattpadders all over the world

The Wattpad community spans the globe, and we want to make sure every reader and writer can connect with WattCon in real time, even if they’re in Australia, Europe, or the Philippines. Can’t make it in person? You can still experience all the highlights of WattCon in real-time through our livestream.
