We're transforming branded entertainment and Wattpad has become the platform of choice for brands to create stories, share stories and engage Gen Z. Our in-house Creative Team can work with your brand to build custom assets for all your campaign needs, from targeted ad packages to large-scale writing contests, and everything in between.

Reach our community and create lasting affinity through branded writing contests, and come away with a collection of original branded stories. Wattpad will take a data-centric view to determine which stories can be adapted into other forms (i.e. short film) to make a last impact off platform.

Our influencers are skilled at bringing brands into their story worlds. Whether it’s a new branded story from a top-tier Wattpad Star, or a bonus chapter in one of our most-read stories, make your brand part of what they already love.

Our community cares about giving back, and Wattpad is the perfect place to engage our Gen Z audience through a purpose-driven campaign. Set a donation goal and have the Wattpad community contribute towards your cause just by doing what they love- writing!
