Manchester Girl Geeks presents an introduction to Wikipedia, aiming to shift the balance by encouraging more women to participate as editors. The event promises to be a tea and cake packed day with scouting and editing galore.

Helpers from Wikimedia UK and Manchester Girl Geeks will show you how to take your first steps as a Wikipedia contributor, and can provide more advanced help to those who’ve already dabbled. Bring along your favourite sources and add to the body of knowledge together.

The editing day will include separate areas for beginners and people who already know how to edit Wikipedia – if you attended our event last year, or you already have experience of editing, there’ll be a more advanced area where you can get on with editing, and have help on more advanced topics. If you’re not experienced, trainers will take you through the basics of logging in and editing, as well as give you some ideas of how to contribute.
