Join AWA+D and Woodbury at this unique writing workshop, part of a global campaign for improving and increasing Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of women in architecture and the built environment.

Learn the Basics

No previous experience needed! We will introduce you to the Wikipedia community and the general editor interface. You will be guided through a step-by-step demonstration on how to write and edit Wikipedia entries. Attendees will have the opportunity to begin basic research and preliminary entry writing, with full access to Woodbury University Library’s collection of research databases. There is no obligation to complete an entry the day of the workshop, come and learn at your own pace. The #wikiD movement is powered by the efforts of several different roles, each requiring various interests and skillsets. Discover the role that fits you best!

What to Bring

Create a Wikipedia account BEFORE the workshop here. Bring your laptop, power cord, and published information (bio, books, articles, etc.) about women whom you would like to write about.
