Event information[edit]

What to expect[edit]

No Wikipedia editing experience necessary; as needed throughout the event, tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers. Women editors, especially women of color and diverse gender expression, are particularly encouraged to attend. If you are unfamiliar with Wikipedia, you might try this training module which will help explain a lot of things, including how to add your signature.
