What to expect at WattCon 2018

We’re gearing up for some great talks with up-and-coming writers, Wattpad Stars, and industry experts geared towards answering the big questions writers have at every stage of the journey. Why? Because no matter where you’re at—whether you’re writing your very first story, or trying to develop your existing writing career—other writers get it.


Mentorship and Guidance

From setting realistic goals to beating writer’s block, to building out your audience, whatever challenges you’re facing right now, we’re here to help you work through it all with advice you can actually use, and mentorship from someone who’s been there, too.



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. And this year you’ll have two full days to make those connections, meet your heroes, and make memories that’ll last a lifetime.


Attend remotely via WattCon Live

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.
