This project aims to improve the representation of Australian and Pacific women writers in Wikipedia.
We hold a Women Write Wiki Session every second Wednesday at The Women’s Library, 8-10 Brown Street, Newtown.
If you would like to join in please email us on womenwritewiki [at] thewomenslibrary.org.au for details of our next meeting.
All women are welcome to join in regardless of whether you have had prior training or previous involvement. We provide some printed resources to assist you on the day. Bring a snack or your lunch and try your hand at Wikipedia editing! We hope to see you there!
