Joining Wattpad Paid Stories

Stories are evaluated by an array of factors.

Here’s what we look for in a story we consider:

    1. You must be a Wattpad Star
      • Stories don’t usually skip this step (with some exceptions, like The Wattys). Even if a story is going straight to Paid, it’s going to also go into Stars first so Stars entry should be your primary goal.
    2. Your story must be completed, either on Wattpad, on Wattpad in draft, or offline in a manuscript
    3. Your story must be at least 50,000 words. There is no upper limit on word count.
    4. Stories can be of any genre, except the following: Fanfiction, Poetry, Non-Fiction, Classics, Random
    5. Your story must be original and wholly owned by you or be based on a story in the public domain and must be based on the version in the public domain
    6. There is no minimum required read count

At the moment Paid Stories are available in English and Spanish. When expanding the program it’s important for our team to provide the appropriate resources for our writers and readers. This includes Editorial Coaches to select stories that are a good fit and can support writers in the program. While we plan to expand the program to additional languages, we are currently only accepting applications in the two languages.
