Thanks for creating this workgroup. I look forwarding to taking part in it.--Jason Sanford 09:30, 21 November 2006 (CST)

Bonnie Hicks

I know that Sanger has urged authors to focus on major articles, but circumstances in my life have occurred such that I needed a good grasp of the Singaporean author Bonnie Hicks. I therefore thought I would contribute this article to maximize my labor. I am unsure exactly how the approved article nomination works - specifically, whether or not authors as well as editors can so nominate - but I did nominate this article. While the article could go into considerable more detail, I do not think that is appropriate in this case. So here we have my first significant contribution to CZ - one I would never have prior foreseen. Stephen Ewen 02:15, 14 January 2007 (CST)

Though not familiar with Bonnie Hicks, the article looks well-written and well-researched indeed. Will keep an eye on Hicks in the future - yet another advantage of being part of this! --CM 05:29, 14 January 2007 (CST)

Minor revisions

I just read through the article, which indeed seems to me to be well-researched and amply documented. I have made just two small stylistic revisions, and I think there may be a few other places where a kind of 'copy-editing' editing could strengthen the overall flow of the article. I don't know enough about Hicks to comment on any substantive matters, though I do have some background in, and occasionally teach, postcolonial literature.

Hi Russel and Carmen. Thanks much. I addressed Russel's referencing concern at Talk:Bonny_Hicks. I did copyedit the article some more but have probably exhausted my own ability at such for now by reason of my proximal investment in the article. Stephen Ewen 19:08, 14 January 2007 (CST)

Are all workgroup discussions this slow?

I joined, but what's the point of the workgroup, if there's no collaboration? Kevin Scott Bailey 02:59, 1 December 2007 (CST)

Literature is tiny compared to others. The best way to get attention to whatever it is you'd like to write is just to be bold and write it for now. :-) Stephen Ewen 12:14, 1 December 2007 (CST)
Will do, and thanks for the response. I contributed heavily to the To Kill a Mockingbird article at WP, so I may C&P that, and rework it for CZ. Kevin Scott Bailey 15:51, 2 December 2007 (CST)
