If you’re a writer, I’m sure you’ve heard of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short) and you’ve probably heard of Wattpad. What you might not know is that Wattpad is sponsoring NaNoWriMo this year and is offering up a $2,000 prize. What do you have to do to enter? Easy. Create both a Wattpad and NaNoWriMo account, tag your Wattpad story with #nanowrimo13, and write 50,000 words by December 8th, 2013.
Ashleigh Gardner, head of publishing partnerships at Wattpad, said: “Writing an entire novel in a month is a huge accomplishment and should be celebrated. NaNoWriMo stories shared on Wattpad will get in front of millions of readers around the world. And writers will get instant feedback on their stories via comments, votes and messages— it’s social storytelling.”
