Wiki Loves Literature is an edit-a-thon organized at Wikipedia annually in the month of July to document literature-related articles in different regions of the world on Wikipedia.
The basic aim of the edit-a-thon is to create and develop the amount of culturally relevant knowledge in literature-related articles on Wikipedia. It will lead to creating the research article as well as the standard article.
Last year, in 2021, this edit-a-thon started in Punjabi Community, and this year in 2022, three communities; Asameese, Odia, and Santali joined.
The articles provided must match the theme, which means that most users will be able to find several pertaining subjects close to the theme, whether books, writers, literature festivals, awards, etc. You are free to choose an article from our working list or pick up a topic of your own.
