The third set of WikiD Wikipedia writing workshops is coming up in Melbourne, Berlin and New York. Please join us to keep increasing the number of women architects on Wikipedia.
Melbourne: Saturday, 14 November, 11am –4pm

We’ll start with a presentation about how to write and edit Wikipedia entries, then you can stay for however long suits and start writing in good company and with help at hand. (Bring your laptop and charger.) We’ll also provide a light lunch to snack on as we go, and drinks to celebrate at the end.

Who is this for?
We welcome anyone interested in writing more women in the built environment into Wikipedia. No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary! We provide a quick overview of how to write and edit Wikipedia articles, and assistance throughout the event for your first attempts! Experienced Wikipedians are also very welcome – we need as much help as you can offer!
Please do a couple of things before coming along:
- Please sign up to get a Wikipedia user name BEFORE the event, if you don’t already have one. Do this here.
- Think about who you want to write about – if possible collect some reference material. See here for topic suggestions and here for Australian references.
- Take a look at the WikiD Guides to Editing Wikipedia.
