Description

The Wattpad community event of the year is finally here. Join us at WattCon in our home city of Toronto, Canada as we celebrate our love of stories and the people who tell them. Whether you’re looking to improve your craft, grow your audience, connect with like-minded creators, or learn from industry pros, WattCon is the best place for writers.

Featuring special guests, the Wattpad Stars!

Programming

  • Industry Insiders, brought to you by Wattpad Studios: Lights, camera, Studios! Wattpad has officially entered the entertainment space and in 15 short months, has partnered with industry heavy-hitters like TNT, Universal Cable Productions, and The Coup Company, as well as publishers like Simon & Schuster, Hachette Audio, and HarperCollins. But what does that mean for creators wanting to take their story to Wattpad and beyond? Get the inside scoop from entertainment and publishing industry pros and learn tips and tricks to help you and your story stand out among the rest.
  • Building Your Online Fanbase: The power of community-driven platforms is changing the lives of writers. Writing on Wattpad is a social and mobile experience that allows creators to connect immediately with their fans. But how do you translate your online success off of Wattpad? How can writers use social media to build and enhance their personal brand, as well as increase engagement and influence? Get the lowdown on how to market yourself like a pro, with tips and tricks on how to sustain an online audience in the world of DIY digital publishing.
  • Storytelling Pros: Mastering the art of storytelling is no small feat. From developing characters to capturing plot points, how do you craft a compelling story in the digital age? Take a deep dive with storytelling pros as they guide you through the ins and outs of creating a story with depth and resonance that will capture your audience.
  • Ask Wattpad Anything: With over 100 employees, there’s a whole lot going on within the bright orange walls of Wattpad HQ. From Product and Engineering to Creator Relations and Wattpad Studios, this panel gives a glimpse into who helps make Wattpad, Wattpad. Here, HQ staff take center stage and open up about their experiences. Here’s your chance to Ask Us Anything.
