What is a Writer Reveal?
Writer Reveal is a new feature to give you special access to the minds of your favorite writers on Wattpad. Peek behind the curtain for the scoop on why a character did that, ideas left on the cutting floor, and story secrets for you to unlock!
How can I unlock a Writer Reveal?
You can unlock a Writer Reveal using Wattpad Coins. Tap into a story and scroll down to view if a Writer Reveal is available. You can then learn what the chapter is about, see a note from the writer, as well as the price in Coins.
Tap “Read it now” to unlock the chapter. If you don’t have enough Coins, you will be directed to the Coin shop to purchase a Coin pack of your choice, following which you can continue to unlock and read the chapter.
Alternatively, top up your wallet by tapping the Coin balance on your Wattpad Profile to visit the Coin shop and purchase a Coin pack of your choice.
Can I unlock a Writer Reveal with a Wattpad Premium+ subscription?
Writer Reveals are not part of the Paid Stories program, and therefore cannot be unlocked with a Wattpad Premium+ subscription. To browse Paid Stories that can be unlocked using Premium+, visit the @PaidStories profile on Wattpad.
Can I read a Writer Reveal on my mobile device and web?
A Writer Reveal can be read anywhere you use Wattpad, including the Wattpad app on your iOS or Android device and on wattpad.com.
Once I unlock a Writer Reveal, can I re-read it whenever I want to?
Yes, once unlocked, you can read Writer Reveals whenever you want to. Add the stories with Writer Reveals to your Library to easily access them again and to get notified when new chapters are published.
How do Writer Reveals support writers?
Writer Reveals are another way for writers to be rewarded for their talent and for growing meaningful fanbases for their stories. Every time you unlock a Writer Reveal, you are directly supporting your favorite writers and helping them build a career on Wattpad while doing what they love.
What is the difference between a Writer Reveal and a Paid Story?
The Paid Stories program enables writers to be monetarily supported for their stories. Paid Stories include a limited number of free parts, and the remainder of the story can be unlocked to read via Wattpad Coins or a Wattpad Premium+ subscription. With Paid Stories, writers earn whether they choose to unlock a few parts or the full story.
A Writer Reveal gives readers exciting new content to get the inside scoop on the worlds and characters of their favorite free stories. In other words, the core plot of the story can still be read for free, with a paid Writer Reveal for fans who want to get an inside look at how a writer’s ideas come to life.
How do I know if a story has Writer Reveals available?
If writers you follow publish a Writer Reveal, or stories in your Library are updated with a Writer Reveal, you will be notified. From within a story, you can view the Table of Contents to see if a Writer Reveal is available.
How can I share feedback with writers about what I’d love to read in their next Writer Reveal?
You can express your appreciation and provide feedback for writers through Reaction stickers and comments. Readers can also directly communicate with writers by leaving a note on their message board or in their Wattpad inbox.
How will I know what the Writer Reveal will be about?
Writers will provide a short description to let you know what to expect from a Writer Reveal. Content can range from the scoop on why a character did what they did, ideas left on the cutting floor, and story secrets for fans to unlock.
What languages are Writer Reveals available in?
Writer Reveals are currently only available on stories written in English. As we learn more about how readers interact with these chapters, we may look into expanding this feature to multiple languages.
How do I add a Writer Reveal to my story?
As this is a new feature on Wattpad, we are rolling it out to a small group of writers and expanding to more over the next few months. Our hope is for readers to enjoy this new way to stay engaged with their favorite stories and for writers to have new ways to build their careers on Wattpad.
