Editors Wanted (Wikipedia)

By Anne Chudobiak

-to expand on the curiously optimistic tree metaphor that introduces the world to our national literature (two roots, one trunk, many branches, much understanding, yada, yada, yada)

-to expand, er, grow the list of Canadian short story writers (you know, Munro, Gallant, Fruman, who is reportedly at work on her first collection--isn’t everyone?)

-to determine once and for all whether Coupland refers to a Canadian writer or two villages in England

-to create articles for Canadian writers already mentioned: Charlotte Gill, Golda Fried, Ibi Kaslik, David Elias

-to mention Canadian writers who should be there but aren’t: Marci Denesiuk, Andrew Tibbetts

-to negotiate trades (e.g., offer Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer an entry in exchange for a link from her blog)

-to respect Wikipedia policy (e.g., the primacy of verifiability or no saying that David Adams Richard seems nice even if it’s true.)

Of course you'd say she's a genius, Andrew. She wants to put you in Wikipedia. Great blog, Anne, positively edifying. The list of Canadian short story writers is a tad skimpy, isn't it?
