Creating a draft article takes five steps. Please read carefully.

  1. Leave the box labelled "Subject/headline:" blank.
  2. Place the content of your article in the blank area as illustrated. You may use the Wikipedia Cheatsheet to properly format your article.
    • Remember to use your own words. Do not copy content from another website.
  3. List your references in the bulleted area provided.
  4. If you require assistance with your submission, visit our live chat. You may use any nickname you would like, provided that it isn't already taken.
  5. When you are finished writing, click the "Save page" button. You are all done! We appreciate your submission.


  • Please note: Once you click the "save" button, your draft is published. You may continue to work on your draft as long as you like, there is no deadline.
  • If the draft is declined, you will still be able to edit it. It is simply marked as declined.
  • When you feel your draft is ready to become an article, you can request a review (or a rereview). To do so, edit your draft, by clicking on its “Edit” link, and add {{subst:submit}} at the beginning of your draft.
