Wattpad, the Toronto-based online reading and writing community that says it has received 565 million story uploads since its launch, is starting its own publishing division, Wattpad Books.
Wattpad Books will launch this fall with six young adult titles. According to the company, the six stories on the initial list collectively accumulated more than 100 million reading minutes from the general public in 2018.
Wattpad said it will choose stories for Wattpad Books using a combination of “human editorial expertise” and the company’s Story DNA Machine Learning to “identify and publish stand-out stories from the more than 565 million story uploads on Wattpad.”
