Ms. Magazine + FemBot Collective Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at Ms. Magazine offices in Beverly Hills (sponsored by the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, the Fembot Collective, Ms. Magazine, and the University of Oregon’s Center for the Study of Women in Society). Friday, March 6, 2015.
Wiki meetups offer opportunities to socialize with other local Wikipedians, discuss Wikipedia-related topics, and exchange knowledge and experiences from the universe that is Wikipedia. An edit-a-thon (or write-in) is a popular type of all-day meetup that brings people together to edit Wikipedia in a shared space. These events often focus on improving coverage related to certain topics and are organized in collaboration with a sponsoring organization or venue, such as a university, museum, or library. Many of these events welcome beginners and offer training for new editors. If you are new to Wikipedia and want a little help getting started, consider joining us at a local meetup!
