What’s Your Story? Southwest and Wattpad Team Up for Writing Contest


In celebration of our 50th Anniversary year, Southwest Airlines is teaming up with Wattpad to host the Southwest: Storytellers On The Rise Writing Contest, which celebrates what’s been at the Heart of the Southwest’s values since our founding: kindness. This contest calls upon aspiring and avid writers to share fiction or nonfiction stories of kindness rooted in travel.



Now (Feb. 3, 2021) through Feb. 28, 2021, U.S.-based writers can submit short stories via the Southwest profile on Wattpad for a chance to win the writing contest*. The winning author will receive a once-in-a-lifetime writing mentorship opportunity with Beth Reekles, the author behind the global YA sensation and film franchise The Kissing Booth from Netflix and Komixx Entertainment, alongside additional prizes to help their writing career take off. 


We’re excited to hear your story! Visit now to learn more about the contest, read story submissions from top Wattpad writers, and enter now!
