Where writers strive
Across a decade of Wattys, we’ve celebrated the journey millions of Wattpad writers undertake to bring their stories from their dreams and into the lives of readers around the world.
From the first seed of a story to the moment you type the final period on the last sentence of your final chapter—this is all part of that same journey. That’s why the Wattys are so much more than an award. They’re a celebration of what it takes to tell stories.
Thank you for sharing your Wattys 2019 stories. Our judges and data scientists are evaluating your submissions now. Writing is a discipline that takes practice. But the ability to build a new world, pull strange and wonderful ideas out of thin air? That can’t be taught. It’s something special inside all of you who choose to write and bravely put your stories forward. So thank you. Thank you for being part of The Wattys journey. The awards are now closed, and we look forward to sharing the winning stories soon.
Watty Awards winners will be announced on September 30th, 2019.
