When literature meets the Internet, it results in the creation of cyber-literature. This brings great novelties, not only because it expands the elaboration, production and scope of literature, but also because it allows the creation of digital platforms for reading and writing. Among the pages, the most representative is Wattpad, a website with 94 million users and the cradle of today’s best-sellers. This article explores this phenomenon, allowing the reader a brief glimpse into the vast new world of literary platforms, including a short story by the author on a particularly sensitive topic.
