Special Services

Welcome to the place to find specific, help on special topics. Whether you need to get a qualified critique about your character’s orientation, gender identity, mental / physical issues or whether need to know what a truss is for - from either a carpenter or a health care professional, you’re in the right place.

Check the resource threads for users who are willing to help in their area of experience and / or start a thread. You can post specific story excerpts for sensitivity reading or fact checks, and discuss your options with people who share your character’s challenges. Get those special insights that can take a character to the next level of realism.

Writers

Feel free to browse the threads to find a person who can answer your questions and / or help you present a factual representation of your characters or story events.

You can choose a helper from one of the pinned threads and PM them on Wattpad main, or tag them to a thread either here or in The Cafe. You can post a thread asking for input from specific users, for specific reasons or a general question for anyone who cares to answer.

You can communicate with the helper you choose any way you and they are comfortable with. You can use PM, email, Google Docs (or something similar) or use a thread here. You can post to present specific excerpts from your work and / or discuss things.

If you choose to make a thread here, be aware that the threads are open to the public. Please be civil and respectful when communicating with others.

When you make your thread or request, please include the following:

  • What kind of help / feedback you are looking for.
  • An estimate of the amount of service you need (a few paragraphs, a chapter, etc.) Keep in mind that you can advertise for a Beta Reader for complete works in the Beta Reader area.
  • Ways you are open / able to communicate (Thread, PM, email, shared online documents etc.).
  • Please specify if you are offering a payment. Examples of what you can offer are comments/feedback, follows, shout outs, attribution, reading list adds, and graphics/stickers. Votes are not allowed as “payments” so please do not mention votes/stars/likes in your advertisement. Please note that monetary payment and off-Wattpad (eg. a follow on other sites ) is not allowed in the forums.

If you have a thread and have received all the help you need, please edit your title to say closed so people don’t continue to post / contact you. Please flag the first post of your thread using the ‘Something Else’ option and ask for a moderator to close it. You can find out how to use flags here.

Post your topic threads here.

NOTE: Any threads that are inactive for over 30 days will be automatically closed.


Helpers:

To advertise your services, make a post in the thread that matches your area of experience. To help writers choose you, feel free to include a little information about yourself and the service(s) you offer. You can post in more than one area thread, if you have knowledge in more than one area. For example, if you’re a Veterinarian who struggles with depression, you can post in Sensitivity - Mental Health and Skill Sets.

PLEASE do not offer services in Sensitivity- Physical Health or Sensitivity- Mental Health unless you (or a family member) have been diagnosed with a condition by a Medical Professional.

When you make your thread post please include the following:

  • What kind of help / feedback you are offering.
  • How much time you can spend and how much content you are willing to check.
  • Ways you are open / able to communicate (Thread, PM, email, shared online documents etc.).
  • Please specify if you are asking for a payment or if your service is free. Examples of what you can ask for in payment are comments/feedback, follows, shout outs, attribution and reading list adds. Votes are not allowed as “payments” so please do not mention votes/stars/likes in your advertisement. Please note that monetary payment and off-Wattpad payment (eg. a follow on other sites ) is not allowed in the forums.

The helper lists with links to the threads are here.


Whether you are a writer or a helper remember:

Wattpad is a positive community, keep it positive


Rules

  • Be kind. Always. The Code of Conduct always applies.

  • Outside readers - feel free to read the threads. If you feel you have something positive to contribute, you may post in these threads, but arguing, spamming (including off topic posts), or asking for help of your own is not allowed.

  • Keep all conversations civil. Suggest, but don’t demand. Writers, remember that you asked for help because you didn’t know what your helper knows. Helpers, remember that in the end, the writer has to decide.

  • If you reach an impasse, agree to disagree and part company amicably.

  • Writers have the right to decline any input or offer without having to provide a reason.

  • Helpers have the right to decline any request without having to provide a reason.

*Please use the flag option to alert moderators to a problem rather than participating in a fight.
