Wattpad: Clubs for Writers and Readers

By Allison Foster

For those who love to read, Wattpad.com has a lot to offer. It is a location where writers and readers come together and share stories for no other reason than because a story needs to be told. Genres of all kinds reside on this popular website and there is easily something for everyone within its pages. There is also a community mindset amongst its readers and writers. The site covers a wide range of likes and interests and has many clubs available to those who love to read.

Newest Club Discussions

You’ll find a collection of links to Wattpad’s many available clubs by going to the site’s Community drop down menu then selecting Clubs. These clubs are full of people interested in specific motifs. The “Newest Club Discussions” are posted on the top left of the page and feature recent comments. You’ll find breadcrumbs on the bottom of each comment giving you the link to the specific club.

Feature Clubs

The featured clubs are popular or otherwise deemed to be in the featured list. Thousands of members reside in these clubs covering a wide range of topics from “Essential Reads” to “Share Your Poetry.” Each club has a short description of what it’s about its number of  members. It’s not uncommon to see clubs with tens of thousands of members. These clubs are more generalized than some of the others, but see a great deal of visitors.

Specialty Clubs

The list of specialty clubs is longer than the featured list because it delves deeper into conversations relating to specific aspects of writing. This list is comprised mostly of clubs that are centered on improving your skill in writing or editing. However, reader clubs also exist so that others can share what interesting online authors they have read and discuss projects created by Wattpad writers. These areas are tailored to beginner and experienced writers alike and cover everything from “Newcomers” to “Professional Writers.”

Categories

The longest of the club lists belongs to those under the Categories section. Each category of written content on Wattpad is listed here broken down by genre.  Although fewer members reside in each of the clubs under this section, these clubs have membership ranging from 1,000 to more than 30,000 members. As Wattpad covers such a diverse range of content, there is a club available for nearly anyone.

One of the most interesting areas belongs to “Fan Fiction.” Wattpad allows submission of content based on nearly anything you are a fan of. For example, you could write that “Star Trek: The Next Generation” story you’ve always wanted. Since there is no money being made from the project, there are no copyright laws or official red tape to worry about. Coincidentally, more than 16,000 members belong to this specific club.

Free Reading Material and More

Wattpad.com is more than just a site to acquire free reading material. It is a place where anyone can share their stories for all to read and receive feedback from those who read them. Beginner authors post their works in order to practice as they receive insights about how the public gauges their performance. It is a place where others can share knowledge, book ideas, character building, and more. Community clubs are developed and frequented by the readers and writers of Wattpad sharing ideas on a global scale. No other site is quite like Wattpad.com.

    I have a Wattpad account, and I agree– there is a lot of interesting material there. My only complaint about the site is that it tends to contain a lot of material that’s less professional (i.e. written by 12-year old girls). I was looking through the fanfiction section the other day, and the first two pages were all One Direction-inspired. Not joking– completely filled with romances about girls meeting one of the members.

    On the other hand, I do enjoy the clubs on there, and the fact that there are so many members makes it a really versatile community :) Have you tried Figment, too? It’s also a writing site, though it’s a smaller community.

    Thanks for letting us know about all this, Allison. A story always does need to be told, as you say. And story evokes story as well. So, yes, a community of readers also makes sense. Each story demands a response, no doubt.

  4. Useful info. Lucky me I discovered your site

    unintentionally, and I’m shocked why this accident did not took place earlier! I bookmarked it.

    Take note that Edge – Rank, the Facebook News Feed optimization algorithm that determines what content or activities from your network is displayed on News feed, prefers visual content too.
    Create a “Custom HTML” module in the position you
    would like. Having a strong social media presence is beneficial to your
    company as others will help share and promote your
    business while also helping to spread the word about your company.

  8. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and extremely
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

  9. Hi, I do think this is an excellent web site. I stumbledupon it ;) I
    may return once again since i have book-marked it. Money
    and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.

  10. We are a bunch of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme
    in our community. Your site offered us with valuable info to work on.
    You’ve done an impressive task and our whole group might be grateful to you.

    s better to use whole foods made from scratch for good health.
    In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to
    keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. Expect to lose all that extra flabbiness as you melt off all your unwanted fat.

  12. Believing that you are actually starving, it releases chemicals that
    actually make it harder to lose weight in an
    effort to conserve energy. Vitamin B3 or also
    called as Niacin is important in weight loss because
    it is responsible for the regulation of thyroid hormones and also in sugar levels in the body.

    Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you’re
    working to lose weight and keep it off.

  13. Save All Paperwork: Whatever paperwork arrives
    with your parts or which is provided from the
    seller should be maintained. Rather, they’re designed to help spark possibilities in your own mind. You wont get a true imitation of your signature with this Android app, unless you can cleverly manipulate the mechanics behind its operation, but that is highly unlikely.
