Wattpad and Skillshare are teaming up to challenge you to create an online class to share your expertise in short story telling with a global community of students. Do you know the secrets to crafting compelling short stories or wish someone had taught you the skills you’ve picked up today? Now’s your opportunity to share that information with millions of others.

As a teacher on Skillshare, you’ll earn money for every student that enrolls in your class, plus build your brand as a writer and teacher. Publish your first class by March 25th and you’ll also qualify to win prizes, like a free annual membership to Skillshare, a $50 cash bonus, and your class featured on How Wattpad Works

In the contest, you’ll make 20-45 minutes videos walking students through the skills they need to write a short story. Never taught or made videos before? No problem! The only equipment you’ll need is your computer – we’ll give you the support and resources you need to make an awesome class. Learn more below.
