Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

The Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon is an annual event hosted in March in Moffitt 405. Experienced Wikipedians can drop in to edit with other members of the community, and newbies can attend workshops on editing. Watch this space for the 2019 date and time!

Drop in any time, stay as long as you like!

  • Drop in any time. Stay as long as you like.
  • Edit on your own or attend an optional training.
  • Bring a laptop or mobile device.
  • We'll provide the training, the food, and the fun!
