Featured content dispatch workshop


The Featured content dispatch workshop facilitates the production of dispatches for the Wikipedia Signpost, one-off articles on the various vetted processes present on Wikipedia—including the Featured processes, Good articles, Did you know, Peer review, In the news, and so on. They can be tutorials teaching the reader how to do something, tips on using or reaching certain processes or tools, news stories covering major developments in article writing, interviews with writers, etc. Please note that Dispatches maintain a certain level of independence from the Signpost proper and so may be subject to external review.

The goal of the workshop is to act as a staging area for writers looking to contribute Dispatches to The Signpost. We hope that this page will help writers produce excellent articles that help others use and understand the Featured articles processes. Suggesting stories and writing them is open to anyone interested in contributing.

Please link your dispatch proposals here using the given formatting. Dispatch submissions are automatically transcluded to the Signpost Newsroom; the necessary formatting is available upon editing the page. Note that the dispatch workshop has always maintained a certain degree of autonomy from the Signpost, so your piece may subject to external vetting.

After publication be sure to add the title of the Dispatch to {{FCDW}}, the template which serves as the Signpost Dispatches index, as below.
