Help address the gender and other gaps on Wikipedia relating to literary translation by editing articles on international women writers, women translators and other underrepresented groups. Come with your own computer, connect with countless resources, and leave with a basic toolkit to continue editing on your own. The workshop will be led by translators Margaret Carson and Alta L. Price.
Newcomers to Wikipedia and experienced contributors of all genders, including queer, gender-non-conforming and gender-non-binary, are welcome.
