In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Kundiman will be hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon at the Asian American Writers' Workshop on Saturday, May 12th from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM. This event will be co-sponsored by AAWW, Wikimedia NYC, and PEN America.
Our Edit-a-Thon will work on addressing the gaps and deficiencies across pages related to Asian American literature on Wikipedia. The goal is to bolster the presence of Asian American writers and literary organizations and make this information accessible to all.
Training will be provided by Wikimedia NYC, and no previous Wikipedia experience necessary. Please bring a laptop! Beer from Lagunitas will be available, courtesy of PEN America. RSVP here!
We're also hosting a second Edit-a-Thon on May 27, at the Ace Hotel in New York. RSVP for that event here.
