Wattpad is a platform which allows for serialized content delivery. Much like Charles Dickens did with his novels, my content will be printed on the internet page by page or a few pages at a time.
My serialized novel, “Orwell: The End of the Beginning” is up on the platform right now and you can read it right here.
What is Wattpad? Here is the Wikipedia entry.
Wattpad is an online social reading platform intended for users to read and write original stories. Founded by Allen Lau and Ivan Yuen, the platform aims to create social communities around stories, and remove the barriers between readers and writers. The platform allows users to write and publish stories, or just read stories generated by other users. In January 2021, Naver Corporation announced that it would be acquiring Wattpad. The deal was completed in May 2021. As of November 2021, Wattpad has a monthly audience of more than 90 million users, who can directly interact with the writers and share their opinions with fellow readers.
Wattpad has stories available in more than 50 languages, and nearly 300,000 writers from 35 countries take part every year in the largest writing competition, the Watty Awards. Some of these stories are being transformed into TV dramas and movies, an example of which is The Kissing Booth. In January 2019, Wattpad launched a publishing division named Wattpad Books, in an effort to take the “guesswork” out of publishing for authors.
