Wikiproject/Group editing activities and efforts
Monthly projects and group efforts
- WikiProject: Women in Red: Women writers & their works, September 2020. In September, Women in Red is once again focusing on women writers and their works from around the world. Although we welcome the creation of articles on any of the notable women writers around the world, we would like to include some of those associated in one way or another with World War II, It has also been suggested we should give attention to those involved in TV or radio and to those from non-English speaking countries whose works have been translated into English or have led to films distributed around the world.
- The AfroCine Project invites you to join us again this October and November, the two months which are dedicated to improving content about the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.(awarding prizes to different categories of winners:)
