Short Story - How to get the most from the Club.


Short Story is fiction of 25K words or less. Stories can be as short as a few words, or longer and divided into a few chapters. They can be any genre and are usually less complex. Micro and Flash fiction goes here, too.


If you have any questions or need help, don’t hesitate to ask one of our Community Ambassadors (club moderators) here.

Please help make Wattpad a friendly and welcoming place that everyone can enjoy. By keeping your discussions polite and friendly, you spread the positivity that makes Wattpad so special.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of the Short Story Club:

This is the club where Short Story authors can ask for help and discuss the best ways to write short stories. Please try to keep your discussions on topic. General chatting and non-writing discussions can be held in the Cafe Club, message boards on your profile, or via private messages.

If you would like to share your story with others, please post your advertisement in our official Short Story Share Your Story Club. It’s refreshed once a week, so be sure to come back after a week to advertise again.

Please remember, directing people to your story or asking them to read it is considered advertising and should only be posted in the official Short Story Share Your Story Club.

If you’re looking for help with your story and ways to get more feedback, be sure to check out our Story Services Club. This is where you’ll find numerous Wattpadders offering a variety of the most commonly requested forms of help including:


:black_small_square: Editors

:black_small_square: Book Clubs


:black_small_square:Writing Buddies/Mentors


:black_small_square:And More!

If you’re interested in offering these services to others, please help us keep things organized by advertising in the Story Services club. This will allow authors in every club to find you.

Discussions that tend to do well are ones with an engaging and interesting title and topic. If you’re not getting many responses, consider editing your title and first post which you can do by using the :fountain_pen: ‘pen’ icon instead of bumping your thread.

If you’re looking for non-writing resources and new ways to have fun on Wattpad, be sure to check out the Cafe Club’s Public Notice Board. <–Will have to create this
