All Things Magic Edit-a-thon 2013 will be held on Saturday, September 14th. This Wiki-kadabra event will promote bringing together magicians and magic enthusiasts from around the world to help update Wikipedia and MagicPedia articles concentrating on a range of topics around magic history.
Sponsored by MagicPedia (the wiki for magicians by magicians), Genii Magazine, the Conjuring Arts Research Center and Grand Illusions magic store, it will be held virtually around the world, with the goal to help assimilate MagicPedia’s content into Wikipedia (and vice versa).

Grand Illusions magic shop in Carmichael, California will host a local hangout. The store will be open from 10am to 6pm. They have a large library of Magic, Genii, Linking Ring and Mum magazines, some dating into the 30s, available.
Event: An edit-a-thon! Learn how to contribute to Wikipedia and collaborate with others to write about topics related to magic history.
We plan to participate mostly virtually – use the hashtag #Wikikadabra to let us know you’re out there and to ask questions during the event.
Join us! No experience needed. Anyone with an interest in editing collaboratively and having a great time is encouraged to attend. Even if you just have a favorite magician you would like the volunteers to research, join in and provide ideas.
