WikiProject Essays

Information to help members collaborate, and other useful information about the project.


WikiProject Essays aims to categorize all Wikipedia essays, classify them, and raise awareness about Wikipedia essays to the larger Wikipedia community. With over 1,000 essays in Wikipedia space, it is becoming increasingly difficult for users to find relevant information, and for users to differentiate between essays that represent widely held beliefs and essays that represent only a few editors at best. WikiProject Essays seeks to aid such users.

WikiProject Essays is only concerned with essays in the Wikipedia namespace, not essays in user space.
