Right now, Wattpad is available in over 50 languages and around 63% of our registered users are located outside of North America. However, 77% of our content is written in English. To help make these English stories available to a larger part of the community, a number of Wattpadders are volunteering their time to translate stories. […]
Whether you are a reader or a writer, you want to know the moment something happens around a story you are following. Wattpad’s new iOS and Android update gives you more detailed notifications about stories. Notifications will let you know when someone comments or votes on one of your stories, or when they add it […]
To celebrate National Poetry Month (#npm), Wattpad is hosting a haiku contest. Haikus are an easy way to dabble in poetry and explore a new form of the written word. What’s a ‘Haiku’? Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. A haiku consists of maximum 17 syllables (or beats), divided into three lines […]
Imagine if every story you had in your library were printed? Right now, almost half a billion stories are sitting in Wattpadders’ libraries, and it would take tons of natural resources to print, bind, ship, and store those printed books. Wattpad stories reduce paper consumption, save energy in book production, eliminate the need for packaging […]
In honor of National Poetry Month, Wattpad held a week long haiku contest. We had more than 1,200 submissions, and we were blown away by the quality of all of your poetry. It was a real struggle to choose winners from so many quality submissions, but our team of judges eventually whittled down the entries […]
Two very popular Wattpad stories are coming to a digital bookstore near you. A Proscriptive Relationship, which has been read over 33 million times, and My Wattpad Love, which won a Watty Award in 2012, are now available to buy online in print and ebook form through Amazon, iBooks, and Kobo. A Proscriptive Relationship by Jordan […]
She read to you every night before bedtime. Rain or shine, she took you to the library when you were bored, or heartbroken, or just needed a little escape. You were such a wild child she rarely got the chance to curl up quietly with a book and a warm cup of coffee. This Mother’s […]
Last week we suggested that Wattpadders give their moms the best present of all: stories. We asked you to share the reading list you’d recommend to your mom, and Wattpadders responded with reading lists as diverse as the women who raised them. One of our favorites was a list by sixteen year-old Kayla, aka Wattpadder […]
This May we’ve decided to recognize the Memoir. All month, Wattpad will be celebrating your true stories. Whether it’s a roadtrip journal, a military memoir, or personal tales of first and last loves, we are eager to hear your story. Share your own real stories and tag them #memoirmonth to be featured. In June, we […]
What better way to understand the symptoms and risks of a disorder than to put yourself in the shoes of someone suffering from it? On the surface, A Negative is a new adult romance about a young woman named Ashley. What Ashley doesn’t know in the story is that she’s suffering from a serious bleeding […]
Seven years ago, Ivan and I started Wattpad because we love to read. We shared our passion with the world, and we watched Wattpad grow into the global community it is today, 25-million strong with users in nearly every country in the world. This would not have been possible without a free and open Internet. […]
Wattpadder Anna Todd (Imaginator1D) has warned fans of her After series that there are only a few chapters left before the story’s conclusion, and those fans must be wondering “what’s next?”. Well, they need no longer wonder. Regardless of what happens to Tessa and Harry, fans of the series will be living happily ever After. […]
Today we have a post from Emily Lindin, who created the Unslut Project: an organization dedicated to promoting gender equality and sex positivity by raising awareness about sexual bullying and slut shaming. She’s also a Wattpadder and has shared her own experiences with sexual bullying in her story The Unslut Project. Hash tags can be […]
This week the Oxford English Dictionary announced its latest entry: a new definition of shipping, made popular by online fanfiction. To ship is to wish for an imagined relationship between two characters or people. It is often signified by creating a portmanteau of two names; the example the OED gives is that many people ship […]
You’ve got brilliantly curated reading lists, funny inline comments, and amazing stories. So of course we want to help you get more followers and more reads. Today Wattpad launched a new discovery tool to make it easy for people to find your Wattpad profile. Place them on your blog, Tumblr, or website and let others […]
May was Memoir Month at Wattpad, so we asked for your true stories, and you recorded them in droves. We heard tales of heartbreak, accounts of summer camp catastrophes, stories of overcoming adversity and ill health, travelogues from around the world, and even a possible UFO sighting. We have collected some of our favorites in […]
Some dads can fix a toilet; some can help with your math homework. There are fathers who can give legal advice, or perform brain surgery, or can do 100 pushups. These small acts, in the eyes of children, can make many fathers seem like superheroes. But if they really were superheroes, magically thrown into your […]
Today marks the beginning of World Pride, which is being hosted in Toronto this year. Toronto is also the home of Wattpad HQ, and we couldn’t be more happy for our city to be hosting such a prestigious event. In honour of World Pride, we’d like to celebrate the very vibrant LGBTQ community that has […]
Wattpadders have noticed that we’ve been experimenting with some new content and features lately. If you’ve seen some of these experiments, you may have also noticed that some of the new offerings are paid, unlike the rest of Wattpad’s free content. To eliminate any doubt, we wanted to make one thing clear: these experiments do […]
