WikiProject Women in Red/The World Contest[edit]

Hi. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There will be over $4000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. If this would appeal to you and you think you'd be interested in contributing new articles on women writers during this month please sign up in the participants section. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Help would also be appreciated in drawing up the lists of missing articles. If you think of any missing articles for your project please add them to the appropriate sub list Missing articles. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:16, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Ryszard Kapuściński[edit]

Once described as 'the best journalist ever', also subject of controversy for blurring allegory with reportage. Window of opportunity this week to massively improve the article, but not too many editors involved. Please chime in at the Talk page there with suggestions for improvement. -Chumchum7 (talk) 05:55, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Early medieval literature as top-important?[edit]

I have written a comment to the article Early medieval literature. After that, I discovered that it was rated top-important, which I find very surprising. I hope, and am also very curious, to read any responses to the issues I have raised in the comment. But, please note that I am not always online. I will surely keep an eye on the page, as much as possible. Sechinsic (talk) 15:01, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at http://69.142.160.183/~dispenser/cgi-bin/topic_points.py?banner=WikiProject_Literature

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 16:54, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Need help, article on writer/literary critic[edit]

I have been very active on Wikipedia for years, but have never published an article from scratch.

I just wrote one but it remains as a Draft; I don't know how to actually Publish it.

 Draft:Fred Jacob (journalist) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Fred_Jacob_(journalist)#Primary_works

Can you provide any advice?

Draft:Fred Jacob (journalist) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Fred Jacob (1882–1927) (occasionally shown as Fred Jacobs in some publications about his work)[1] was a journalist with Toronto's The Mail and Empire (now the Globe and Mail), having joined the publication in 1903, after having won the publication's poetry contest.[2] Jacob was first a sports reporter but from 1910 to 1928, he was responsible for the entire literary section of the newspaper; he was also the drama and music critic.[3][4] Occasionally, he wrote about drama in the Canadian Magazine.[5]

Contents [show] Early years[edit] Jacob was raised in Elora, Ontario, the son of a lawyer and the nephew of a judge and particularly enjoyed lacrosse. Later, while living in Toronto, he was the president of a lacrosse club for 16 years.[6]

Primary works[edit] Jacob wrote two novels, The Day Before Yesterday (published in 1925) and Peeee (1928),[7] both satirical works[8] the first set in fictional small communities resembling Elora, Ontario, his home town with some characters (especially in the first book) resembling those Jacob had known. He wrote that his intention in the books was to "preserve an impression of the Canadian scene".[9] A review of the first book provided this comment: "To the structure of Canadian literature Mr. Fred Jacob has contributed not only a substantial brick but a graceful vine."[10]

Jacob also wrote several popular stage plays, including One third of a bill and Autumn Blooming.[11][12][13][14]

Legacy[edit] Jacob suffered from rheumatic fever and died on 3 July 1928 of a heart attack during a social function.[15] An obituary in Saturday Night (magazine) referred to him as the "ablest critic on drama of the daily press in Toronto", praising "the soundness of his judgements and clearness of his expositions".[16]
