For those who have been a part of this community for a while, you may be familiar with Wattcon events. Usually hosted by users and fans of the forum, it brings together writers from every genre and experience to share stories, tips and exchange ideas in a like minded collection of writers. But this time, Wattpad has taken the helm and promised to bring even more awesomeness to this beloved event. There is no other forum quite like Wattpad, and for writers to be given the opportunity to not only meet some of their favs, but do so at HQ, is something not to be missed.
Fangirlish will be there front and center, grabbing interviews, chats and behind the scenes of the event! And, for those who cant make the trip to Toronto, no worries! Wattpad will be doing a livestream of the event for everyone to be able to take part!
