This new Wikipedia for copywriters needs your help

We’ve created a wiki just for copywriters.

What’s a wiki?

A wiki is a type of website that anyone can edit. Wikipedia is the most successful example of a wiki site.

It means that, in theory, the content can be shaped by a wide pool of contributors.

Why are you doing this?

We created this wiki in the hopes that copywriters will enjoy sharing their knowledge with others, and in time this will become a resource that all copywriters can rely on. A free, open, encyclopaedia for copywriters.

How can I help?

Anyone can edit the wiki, at any time. You can add pages. You can add material. You can edit and organise. You can do a little. Or a lot. Every edit helps.

As well as simply creating and editing, we want to create a quarterly Wiki Committee meeting for any contributors who want to think about the broader strategy and some of the admin questions like:

  • Writing and editing guidelines
  • Managing spam
  • Organising volunteers
  • Prioritising content
  • Rewarding supporters

Join the Wiki Committee

What should the CopyWiki include?

It’s a blank slate, but we will probably include pages on:

  • Copywriting principles
  • Copywriting legends
  • Books about copywriting
  • Other techniques, practices, processes or tools that are relevant to copywriters and copywriting

 

What’s in it for me?

For the most part, the CopyWiki is a volunteer-powered resource.

The Wiki Committee can also discuss some kind of thank-you page on the wiki where we list contributors and link to their own websites. We’re also producing a badge that contributors can use to share their involvement.
