(in Inglis) We're an online group that has formed to fix all of the bad Scots Wikipedia articles, help out the site's admins by teaching them proper Scots, and generally improve the quality of the Wiki.

This time, we're trying "writing drives", where we'll have a week where we can make time to write for the wiki any time throughout. You can write as little or as much as you'd like.

We've got two collaborative editing sessions planned on Tuesday 18th & Thursday 20th too - join us on Zoom! We'll be joined on Thursday by Dr Michael Dempster from the Scots Language Centre, who'll be opening the session with a short talk.

This writing drive will be focussing on Languages, and Category:Scotland stubs. If there are images, infoboxes, references that need adding in any of these articles, please do! Adding references to existing articles is a really good way to contribute to the Wiki.

Images could also be added to relevant articles from this collection recently added by Aberdeen Art Galleries and Museums.

Images could also be added to relevant articles from the Scottish Government's Flickr account category on Wikimedia Commons.
