Request for photographs and images[edit]

To help address the many requests for photographs People-photo-bot has moved article talk pages from Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of people to Category:Wikipedia requested photographs of writers if it contains the template(s) {{WPBooks}}, {{WikiProject Books}}, {{WPJournals}}, {{NovelsWikiProject}}, {{WikiProject Novels}}, {{WPPoetry}}. Members of this project are invited to address the requests for images listed. Please note that some articles may now have an appropriate photograph and that the need-image flag has simply not been removed, this can also be checked using the Image Existence Checker link on the category page. If a page has been incorrectly moved please inform me on my talk page.

Naming conventions for bibliographies[edit]

I have proposed naming conventions for bibliographies here. Any constructive comments you are willing to provide there would be greatly appreciated. Neelix (talk) 16:16, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Bloomsbury Group revisited[edit]

Are there still any people of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Literature/Bloomsbury Group editathon around? I started Bloomsbury Group in LGBT history, which I marked as a stub: mainly concentrates on the people now, the narrative of the history can still be expanded. --Francis Schonken (talk) 06:24, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Dutch-language LGBT writers cat[edit]

During this discussion it was mentioned "this may not be the right place to discuss a very fundamental issue, namely: in literature, a categorization by language is much more relevant than by nationality", to which was replied:"...If others need to be invited to this discussion in a neutral manner, then you have the right to do that." (my bolding). This is the invitation. --Francis Schonken (talk) 05:25, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Nadine Gordimer books[edit]

Hello. Would anyone be interested in creating and expanding pages about all of her novels and other works? I could try to start more stubs, but I don't have time to re-read all her books now. Since she has just passed away, I thought some of you would be interested. Those books definitely deserve a page, with a short summary and referenced criticism. Let me know on my talkpage if interested. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 03:51, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Proposal to delete categories involving literature by women.[edit]

There is a proposal to delete categories involving literature by women, including deleting Literature by African-American women, Literature by Asian-American women, Literature by Native American women, Literature by Hispanic and Latino American women.

There is a new article that popped up on my NPP queue called Signalism that may be of interest to members of this project. It seems a tad essayish and I have tagged it accordingly. Perhaps someone can take a look at it? -Ad Orientem (talk) 17:01, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Literature Online Access[edit]

Hello all! At The Wikipedia Library we are currently in talks with Proquest's Literature Online and Early English Books Online to get Wikipedians access to those databases/collections. They asked us for a bit of information about how Wikipedians might use the research materials, asking us to do a brief survey. It would be extremely helpful if users could fill out the following Google form: Proquest - Literature Online / Wikipedia Library user interest survey. Afterward, while waiting for us to finish talks on Literature Online, we would like to invite editors to apply for already established available partnerships, listed at our partners page. Thank you for all of your help! Sadads (talk) 16:50, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Just reminding everyone that this might be of interest! Calling all survey takers, Sadads (talk) 20:17, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
