Wikimedia District of Columbia hosts workshops for those who want to learn how to edit Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. They also are for editors with some experience who want to learn more about editing.
Experienced Wikipedia editors will show you the ropes and answer your questions about editing, formatting, policy and collaboration with others. All you have to do is bring your laptop, notebook or tablet. (Outlets are available.)
Future workshops will be announced on the main page with more details here
