For those who have never come across Wattpad before, it’s where storytellers gather. Bringing together more than 70 million book lovers, it harbours fresh talent and has evolved into a feeding frenzy of wordsmiths seeking new and exciting stories to read, write and share.
Whether you’re an amateur writer, a lover of fan fiction or quite possibly the next Stephen King, this global community of readers and writers will help get your creative juices flowing.
How? Well, one of the many unique aspects of Wattpad’s UI is that it allows the user to write directly into the app on their iPhone and publish instantly. Readers are also able to comment within a story or chapter about their favourite moments to help build a conversation about the story; championing the idea that community is at the very heart of the app.
You can also read within the app, vote and comment on a story offline, so no matter where you are, you can transport yourself into a world of romance, adventure or even warrior cats (yes, this story really does exist).
If you’ve got designs on taking your writing talents to new levels, make sure you check out their annual writing competition, the Watty Awards. Each year, writers around the world enter for the opportunity to be recognised as one of Wattpad’s great storytellers.
