LitWiki.org is a new online literary resource that is a collaborative effort from poets, writers, artists, teachers, students and scholars from all over the world, of biographical entries; definitions of genre, time period, themes; criticism and theory; and analysis and interpretation of stories, poems, plays, and novels. Our goal is to create a compilation of the most important literary resources for people who are interested in reading, studying, researching, and teaching literature. This is a 2010-2011 initiative.
What makes LitWiki.org unique is that it is inclusive. It iss not just about a literary canon based on a European white male model that has more often than not excluded works by women, gays, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans and non-Europeans; it is a literary resource that truly reflects America and our global diversity.
