Editing Workshop: Learn to Contribute to Wikipedia!
Learn to be an editor on Wikipedia! Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia. Anyone can learn to contribute. Get signed up, learn the markup language, and how to avoid common pitfalls. Whether you're completely new, or you've written or edited in the past, the workshop will cover the basic skill set. Experienced Wikipedia editors will be on hand to answer questions. This workshop is open to anyone who wishes to attend. Bring your own laptops & power cords. (Guest access to UW WiFi will be available.)

We will use The Wikipedia Adventure as our primary teaching tool.
