Looking to hold a workshop? Not sure where to start?

A workshop (sometimes called an 'edit-a-thon') can take many forms, but essentially it is an event where groups of new or experienced people get together to learn how to edit Wikipedia together, either face-to-face or online. Sometimes these events are based around a theme (like increasing the number of articles about women on Wikipedia) or a target (10 new Wikipedia pages).

If you're thinking of holding a workshop, here's some things to get you started!
