It’s that time again… I wish.
WattCon isn’t just around the corner; we’ll have to wait for October 27. I won’t be able to attend, but I’m looking forward to the photos and videos of those who do, and… Hold up! You don’t know what WattCon is?
Okay. Here’s the thing.
WattCon is the biggest, non-online event by Wattpad. Basically, it’s the convention you need to attend to meet up with other Wattpad writers, readers, and staff.
WHEN IS IT TAKING PLACE?
This year, WattCon will take place over two days: Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28.
WHERE IS IT TAKING PLACE?
New York, USA. And that’s the only reason I’m not going. (Mind you, even if it was in Europe, I probably wouldn’t be able to afford it, unless they chose to host it in Bulgaria for some very bizarre reason…)
WHAT WILL TAKE PLACE?
Authorpreneurship: learn how to take your writing career to a new level with practical guidance on navigating the new world of storytelling and content. Gain valuable insights into industry best-practices, self-promotion tactics, and audience building.
Guidance and Mentorship: From setting realistic goals to beating writer’s block, whatever you’re facing on your journey, other writers have been there. You’ll benefit from the expertise of seasoned pros.
Practical Workshopping: Apply the new skills you’ve gained through hands-on workshopping on story ideation, story elevation, and promotion on Wattpad and off.
(See why I want to go?)
HOW TO GET IN?
Well, my original plan was to send myself to New York as a small package (benefits of being tiny), but knowing how postal services sometimes lose their packages… I guess I’ll have to advise you to buy your event ticket here and start looking into other means of transportation. You know, besides the postal service…
IF YOU ARE GOING…
- I’m so very jealous of you.
