AFC-Logo.svg Welcome to Articles for Creation!

Welcome to Articles for Creation! Please read Wikipedia:Your first article, as it will help you avoid the classic "newbie" mistakes and save your hard work from being deleted.

If you don't have a Wikipedia user account, consider registering an account now. If you choose not to register, or you have a conflict of interest but have an idea for a new article with some references, you can create one here and it will be reviewed and considered for publication. If you have an idea for the title of an article, but no content for the article itself, please make a request at Wikipedia:Requested articles. If you already have a Wikipedia user account, you can also use the Article Wizard to help you create your article. To nominate an existing draft or user sandbox for review at Articles for Creation, add the code {{subst:submit}} to the top of the draft or sandbox page.

 Warning: There is an ongoing scam targeting Articles for Creation participants. See this scam warning for detailed information.

Bona fide reviewers at Articles for Creation will never contact or solicit anyone for payment to get a draft into article space, improve a draft, or restore a deleted article. If someone contacts you with such an offer, please post on Wikipedia:WikiProject Articles for creation/Help desk.

Note: If you have a conflict of interest with the topic you are writing about, you should disclose it on the article talk page; see WP:DISCLOSE.

If you are being paid to contribute to Wikipedia, you must—under the Wikimedia Foundation's terms of use—disclose who is paying you, who the client is, and any other relevant affiliation; see WP:COIPAYDISCLOSE. There is more information about this requirement at Wikipedia:Paid-contribution disclosure.

→ When you are ready, go to the Wikipedia:Article wizard for help in creating an article.

Old drafts

Old drafts, drafts that have been unedited for more than six months, are routinely deleted (see WP:CSD#G13). Once deleted, they can be recovered at WP:REFUND/G13. If you want to avoid routine deletion of your inactive drafts, move the page to your userspace, and remove the AfC tags.

Some old drafts have been identified as “promising”, but without any active editor actually committing to working on them. See Category:Promising draft articles. Consider browsing these drafts for topics that you would like to improve and move to mainspace. If you disagree with the tag, remove it.
