Attendees at the 2013 Women in the Arts Edit-a-thon in Washington, DC
An edit-a-thon in São Paulo, Brazil, aimed at creating and improving WorldHeritage articles relating to feminism, women's rights and notable women

In the online communities of projects such as WorldHeritage, OpenStreetMap, and LocalWiki an edit-a-thon (sometimes written editathon) is an event where editors get together to edit and improve a specific topic or type of content, typically including basic editing training for new editors. The word is a portmanteau of "edit" and "marathon".

WorldHeritage edit-a-thons have taken place at WorldHeritagens in residence.

The OpenStreetMap community has also hosted a number of edit-a-thons.[4][5]
