Katherine Mansfield? Edit

Hi, I've just found that our holdings for Author:Katherine Mansfield are practically nil. Would you be interested in proofreading one of the volumes of short stories? If so, do you have a preferred volume? I know it's not Children's Literature, but it's a major gap in both NZ and Women's literature. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 05:39, 8 April 2022 (UTC)<be>Reply[reply]
@Beeswaxcandle: Ok, I will give that a go. I'm not all that familiar with her work, but how about starting with The Garden Party Short Story Collection which includes At The Bay? Noracrentiss (talk) 08:07, 8 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've uploaded the book at Index:The Garden Party (Mansfield).djvu and I've dealt with the preliminary pages and done the first page of the first story. I've also done the header and footer for the second page, so that you can see how they work. I've got this page on my watchlist, so you can ask questions here or on my Talk: or on WS:Scriptorium/Help for help from the wider community. Have fun, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 09:03, 8 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

West Coast Task Force Edit

It's great to see the The Garden Party progressing; wonderful that we'll have that Mansfield collection on the site. If there's anything of interest on the project page, feel free to help out there as well, and even add yourself to the team if you'd like to contribute regularly. —Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 21:35, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
