Purpose[edit]

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!

Invite list[edit]
