Wattpad is looking for a typist to help it create its awards ceremony.
Wattpad’s annual awards ceremony will be held in May. If you have a bit of the Hemmingways, you should consider entering.
Get ready for the 2021 Watty Awards.
The annual Wattpad awards for budding wordsmiths will return in 2021. You could be the next Watty Award winner if you have a terrifying horror story to share with the world or a heartwarming love story that we can all relate to.
Wattpad is a platform that allows writers to voice their opinions (or have their words heard). This competition runs once a year. So anyone with a book should think about finishing it and entering it into the Wattys!
Wattpad will announce the shortlisted stories on November 1, with the competition closing on September 30. Wattpad will notify the final winners on December 3, 2021.
