Wattpad is a powerful tool that can unlock a writer’s true potential and empower their writing journey. But just like any other tool, there can be some questions on how to use it most effectively. Therefore, the Wattpadders you know and love have partnered with Writer’s Digest to create the Writer’s Guide to Wattpad. Consider this your ultimate How-To Crash Course.

Panelists will discuss some of the biggest issues that Wattpadders face, ranging from tactical strategies like how to stories successfully, or develop synopses, to broader topics like how they maintained their story arc within a serialized model, or how real-time reader comments impacted their plot. By sharing insight into these common questions, this session aims to empower writers to leverage Wattpad as a tool that propels their writing craft forward.
