Attendees can propose a session or workshop for the unconference (see details on the Propose page).
The New Media Writing Studio will host a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon workshop. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian and reference materials so participants can help increase the representation of women on Wikipedia.
