In honor of Open Education Week, we invite you to participate in a WVU Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, in order to develop pages about people important to West Virginia and the rest of the region, but who are often overlooked.

Our Edit-a-thon is focused on amplifying the stories and figures of under-represented Appalachian artists, writers, and other creators, particularly womxn, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals.

This event is asynchronous, which means that during the first week of March (March 1-5), you can make edits to related Wikipedia pages at any time that is convenient for you.
