Arts and Entertainment Work Group

The Arts and Entertainment Work Group is a working group of members of the Biography WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biography articles.


Related Projects

Since biographies are potentially under the purview of almost all WikiProjects, it is important that we work in tandem with these projects. Also, when seeking collaboration on articles, don't neglect to approach WikiProjects that are part of the geographical region your subject is/was in.

Related Portals

Increase the exposure of our work group by nominating our articles for their Portal FA and DYKs... Specific discipline portals are listed in that section.

Announcements/To Do (edit)

Add this to-do list to your User page! {{Wikipedia:WikiProject_Biography/Arts and entertainment/Announcements}}

Directions for expanding any division below

The general outline and collection has been started, but if you would like to expand and organize a discipline, here's what you do. Right below the page heading for the discipline insert this: {{subst:Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Work groups/Division banner}} and save. This will put a rough outline together for you and then you can edit it to conform to your area. See Writers and critics below for an example. If your project grows large enough where it's taking up a good portion of this page, you should probably move it to a subpage of this page.

You might also want to make a Members section for people to join your specific area!

Tagging articles

Any article related to this work group should be marked by adding |a&e-work-group=yes to the {{WPBiography}} project banner at the top of its talk page. This will automatically place it into Category:Arts and entertainment work group articles. Articles can be assessed for priority within this work group by using the |a&e-priority= parameter. See Template:WikiProject Biography/doc for detailed instructions on how to use the banner.

Non-notable author. Not nearly enough in-depth coverage to meet wp:gng. Be aware that the Google scholar at first glance looks to merit him passing wp:nscholar. But those hits are for a different person of similar name (the first entry with 1322 cites was published the year this individual was born). So fails WP:NSCHOLAR, and nowhere near meets WP:NAUTHOR.

  • Comment. Umekaodo Removed both the AfD notice from the article and most of the content from this discussion page. I have warned them not to do that. The same article appears to be duplicated at Izunwaonu, which has an interesting history.

Non notable author which looks like it was created by the author. The book Lee seems self-published and has a review at Kirkus, which doesn't mean much. It seems any self-published writer can pay them $500 to get a review published there. https://selfpublishingadvice.org/publishing-is-a-kirkus-review-worth-the-price/ Kirkus promises you a review in 7–9 weeks for $425. You can purchase an expedited review for $575, and they will deliver it in 4–6 weeks. They tell you the review will be 250–300 words. Not sure if the same is true about Publishers Weekly, maybe not, since it is a rather negative review. (I had to create an account to do this AFD since I could not complete the procedure without an account.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tito Perdue (talkcontribs) 09:31, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Keep. His books were regularly reviewed in major mainstream publications well into the 2000s, before, I suppose, he became too controversial. For example, a quick online search turns up a couple of reviews in the LA Times, in addition to several reviews and articles in New York Press, Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews. Smetanahue (talk) 11:36, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep. The request for deletion is completely incorrect. Lee (novel) is not self-published, and is itself well covered by independent reliable sources, as I have explained here. The Kirkus review is also considered to be a reliable source, due to being published independently before Kirkus started offering paid reviews. Frayæ 12:31, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep per WP:AUTHOR. Author has created a work that has appeared in multiple independent reviews. That makes them notable by that standard. Tillerh11 (talk) 20:15, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

Curiocurio please look at the sources again; I’m afraid you looked at them too briefly since your comment is contrary whats there. The sources are just fine.GizzyCatBella (talk) 14:08, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
A blurb in a non-RS she will be speaking at an event, a probably self authored profile (one of thousands) at KresySiberia (probably not a RS, but does not matter), book jakcets she wrote or translated, and a few opeds she penned over the years in a local paper... None of the sources in the article count towards notability. For GNG we expect to see high quality INDEPTH and independent sources - not self authored pieces.Icewhiz (talk) 15:37, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
I went through the sources one by one and came to much the same conclusion. The KresySiberia profile is based on an interview with the subject. The only possible reliable source is the Google snippet of her co-authored book Zegota, if her profile was written by someone else. Not enough. Curiocurio talk) contribs) 16:19, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep - per my comment above. GizzyCatBella (talk) 14:08, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete. Sorry, she doesn't appear to satisfy GNG or AUTHOR, and I was unable to find good sources. In fact, none of the sources cited could be treated as independent, thus precluding any notability-conferring weight. When searching, I did find four mentions in The News-Item, but mostly trivial coverage. BEFORE found nothing else. Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 19:13, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete- Fails GNG.Vinegarymass911 (talk) 16:12, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep - Passes GNG. Needs improvement though. Berrocca Addict (talk) 18:09, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete - Fails WP:GNG and WP:JOURNALIST due to a lack of in-depth information. The subject seems to be a run-of-the-mill critic/editor/journalist, with very little information about them. Indeed, most of the scant information that can be found is related to the subject's book, which itself is non-notable, and so the Jha likely does not meet WP:AUTHOR either. Two other points should be noted; one is that as a journalist Jha's name appears in articles that she authored (these would constitute mentions in passing or trivial mentions, as said articles are not directly about her). The second is that (per nom) that article may be fatally tainted by promotional material.--SamHolt6 (talk) 13:48, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Dubiously notable. Three local refs, all deadlinks. I didn't find anything better on a BEFORE search. Article is full of sketchy assertions of Nobel Prize nominations and prophecies from god, none of it verified.

This is a translation of the Spanish Wikipedia article, which amusingly is tagged as being written "from a fanatic's point of view". Couldn't agree more. ♠PMC(talk) 07:01, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

Non-notable individual lacking in-depth, non-trivial support. Links are brief mentions, interviews, or lack mention of individual. Appears to fails WP:N. Article created by paid editor. reddogsix (talk) 05:06, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete, for the same reasons as were given by everybody except the creator of the article in the previous discussion. There was no evidence of satisfying Wikipedia's notability guidelines when that discussion took place, and there is none now. References are not independent sources, or do not give substantial coverage, or both. Four of the references are merely announcements of an appointment in trade publications and similar, and they contain substantial amounts of text which sentence by sentence gives slightly paraphrased copies of the same statements: clearly merely four write-ups of the same press release. There are web sites which exist largely (or in some cases even entirely) by publishing paid for write-ups of press releases in this way, and presenting it as though it were independent journalism. Other references are no better, including, for example, a mere list of Kelly-Clyne's works, and one of them doesn't even mention him at all. This article is a good example of one of the problems caused by paid editors who come here to use Wikipedia to promote their clients. In such cases there is a severe conflict of interest, as the editor has a vested interest in trying to get the article accepted, which conflicts with the interest of trying to make sure that content follows Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If this discussion ends in delete, as the first one did, I hope the editor will now accept consensus, rather than creating an article to publicise his or her non-notable client for a third time.

Subject doesn't pass GNG, NAUTHOR, or PROF (his google-scholar profile has a h-index of 9, however that is somewhat inflated as around half of the high-cited works do not list him as a named author - he's at 5 or 6). While the article seemingly has a dauntingly impressive list of references, these are mainly self-publications on his site or related sites, short blurbs (1 sentence to short paragraph) of comments to an issue, an occasional interview, and many-many links that do not mention him at all but rather mention the more notable David Fleming (writer).

Dear IceWhiz, thank you for your courteous note on my talk page about your having initiated this deletion process. I much value the kindness, and after reading the links you supplied have come to understand that this is opening a discussion rather than rejecting my efforts. After cutting my teeth on smaller edits this is the first page I have created on Wikipedia, so please go gently with me as I try to understand and incorporate your feedback. I just worked out that I can search on your capitalised terms, which helped a lot!

As you note, I first drafted an article on Mr. Chamberlin a couple of years ago and submitted it for consideration. I was disappointed to not have it accepted at the time, but was advised to add more references to major news sites covering his work, and that notability would have to wait until his work was recognised by being held in significant libraries. As such, after his latest books won book prizes this year I checked WorldCat, which reveals that his work is now published in three languages and held in over 500 listed libraries.[1] Accordingly I dusted off, improved and resubmitted the article with references to the award wins + the requested additional references (apols if I "dauntingly" overdid it!). I did not previously add the WorldCat reference to the article as it didn't seem direct evidence of any of the claims made in the article, but have added it now since you encouraged me to further improve the article with a view to notability. Thanks too for the Google Scholar link.

I've also taken into account your helpful comment that many references were from Chamberlin's Dark Optimism site or related sites. I found 11 such and have either replaced them with reliable, independent sources (e.g. the Open University, Amazon.com) or supplemented them with such. For example, the last four were simply referencing his bibiliography and I have replaced them with a link to his Amazon page.[2] This also led me to add a book that I had previously missed.

Your comment that there are "many many links that do not mention [Chamberlin] at all", however, seems to me to miss the mark. If I understand rightly you are referring to articles such as https://theecologist.org/2010/dec/21/dr-david-fleming-tribute (written by Chamberlin, and included to establish the facts of his relationship with Fleming) or https://sterlingcollege.edu/course/surviving-future-short-course/ (where Chamberlin's work is discussed at length, even though he's only named in the video) or http://www.radicalbooksellers.co.uk/?p=282 (an award nomination for an anthology in which he features). I struggle to find any references that discuss neither Chamberlin nor his work, since I added most of them myself precisely to evidence his notability, but please do correct me if I'm missing something. As suggested I have also added some additional interviews which go into greater depth on his history and work.

I'm sure that this has improved the article, and very much hope that it has also established notability to your satisfaction.

Best, Jases76 (talk) 17:04, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

@Jases76: - Amazon, Youtube, an openu profile, and a wordpress blog do not help much I am afraid. And I do not think his work establishes AUTHOR. What we really need is WP:INDEPTH sources covering Chamberlin at length - and good sources - e.g. reputable news media or coverage in books of others. What is missing here is quality sources with some length - quality over quantity. I was unable to find such sources, and I did look. Constructively, can you point out 3-5 such sources ?Icewhiz (talk) 17:31, 19 June 2018 (UTC)


@Icewhiz: - thanks for the constructive input, which I have followed.
I would again stress that I haven't built an article nor engaged in discussions like this before though, and as such I confess I'm not sure what's wrong with the Open University and Amazon.com as sources? You encouraged me to improve the article re: some of the facts being referenced to Chamberlin's website, which I assumed was on grounds that sources should be reliable and independent of the subject. That seemed a completely appropriate request, but I don't understand why these new sources are "do not help much" on both grounds?
Re: your helpful requests regarding WP:AUTHOR, I have now added in-depth discussion and acclaim for his work from reputable publications such as The Utne Reader, Choice, Feasta, David Bollier, The Idler and The Royal Geographical Society, in addition to the existing references and awards won. To be clear, Chamberlin conceived and created the wonderful Surviving the Future entirely after David Fleming's death, and although the existing references made that apparent, I have modified the article itself to make it clearer there.
Incidentally, a Google Books search (also under typo "Shaun Chamberlain") reveals both positive and negative comments on Chamberlin's earlier work in non-academic books by others - e.g. Deep Green Resistance[3], Nature, Knowledge and Negation[4], Engaging with Climate Change: Psychoanalytic and Interdisciplinary Perspectives[5]. I have not added these to the article as they don't seem to be necessary to establishing the notability of his work and I am aware that you considered the number of references daunting even before this week's additions, but can if you desire.
Also, if you look beyond the URLs of some of the existing references on the article - e.g. there's no avoiding the fact that organisations often post interviews and other video via Youtube/Vimeo - you will find further in-depth discussion of Chamberlin and his work (and I'm not sure whether this is considered relevant to notability, but e.g. this in-depth interview has views into 5 figures[6] and some of the trailers for his film are into 7 figures for views[7][8]). As you've pointed out, he also has significant academic citations, which I wasn't previously aware of. While doing the above I also happened across a translation of his work into a fourth language (Italian) which is not listed on WorldCat[9].
Anyway, I think we're there now. I hope you will agree that with these new requested additions (in addition to the WorldCat, Google Scholar and other links added earlier in the week) this article now meets the criteria for AUTHOR. Thanks again for pointing out the shortcomings in the article as was and prompting these improvements.

Article mostly relies on self-published sources. Claim of notability fails WP:NACADEMIC: no awards, no honors, no impact in the field. The article also fails WP:POET: as works have no notable influence.
One more thing: per WP:BIO, "People are presumed notable if they have received significant coverage in multiple published secondary sources that are reliable, intellectually independent of each other, and independent of the subject." With that in mind, setting aside any notion of Google Scholar establishing notability (which is incorrect, as one of my university professors, for instance, should have an article if that alone establishes notability), three articles about a "Patty Paine" appear on Google News: one of which can be immediately discarded, as it's a passing reference regarding a NYC concert event. The second is a note from the blog of the London Review of Books, in 2013:

Patty Paine, who teaches at the campus I did not know Virginia Commonwealth University has in Doha, and edits Diode, an online poetry magazine, pointed me to the site of another zine.

The final source is from an Abu Dhabi English-language newspaper, The National, which says that Patty Paine Gibbons, in 2011, is "VCU-Q’s [Virginia Commonwealth University-Qatar] assistant English professor".

I submit that the two references, even when combined, amount to trivial coverage of the subject of this article. As such, in this editor's opinion, the subject of this article is not notable, and the article should be deleted. —Javert2113 (Let's chat!) 18:32, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Keep--Diode Poetry Journal and Diode Editions are independent and not self-published articles or sources. Paine is the founding Editor-In-Chief of Diode Poetry Journal but the journal also has input from several editors: Jeff Lodge, editor Emeritus and Law Alsobrook, editor/art director. Any links directly to Diode Poetry Journal or Diode Editions are used to establish titles of published works therein. Furthermore, many notable poets already documented within Wikipedia, such as Victoria Chang, Khaled Mattawa, and Kaveh Akbar have been published by Diode Poetry Journal and under the editorial oversight of Patty Paine. The same goes for Diode Editions. For example, Paine served as editor for the book Bright Power, Dark Peace by Brynn Saito and Traci Brimhall, a notable poet already on Wikipedia.
  • WP:POET (WP:AUTHOR):
  • 3. The person has created or played a major role in co-creating a significant or well-known work or collective body of work. In addition, such work must have been the primary subject of an independent and notable work (for example, a book, film, or television series, but usually not a single episode of a television series) or of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews.
  • a. Patty Paine served as editor for 24 books published through Diode Editions. The books have individually received critical acclaim and been the focus of articles and reviews. For example, Rare Birds by Shelley Wong, was the focus of six reviews from independent sources, as follows:

I'm really not sure how to address this. There is coverage of her in the Bengali press (e.g. see Kuntak Chattopadhyay (30 July 2017). "আদিগঙ্গা থেকে মিলল ঘড়া ভর্তি মোহর, তারপর..." Ananda Bazar Patrika. ). There's references to her work by others (commentaries and criticisms found on scholar.google.com). She has published books and articles. Feanor0 (talk) 19:11, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
That newspaper item is about the coin trove and mentions her incidentally (as does ref #4 in the article). The only coverage of her music/poetry given in the article is similarly short mention, not an in-depth treatment. Can you show some of those? Admittedly I'm unlikely to find non-English ones myself. - That she has published books and articles does not matter in itself, sorry.

I had read her book which I picked up at the airport long back and decided to create her page. I later got to know that she also runs NGO and other things and hence felt she was notable enough.

Hi there, relevance is given, author and musician works with well-known musicians and his works are available worldwide - so there should be a chance for people, who don't know him and speak English, to inform themselves about him.

springfountain, for an article on the English Wikipedia, a musician should pass the criteria for WP:GNG and WP:MUSICBIO. The sources should not come from the artist's own social media websites, blogs or simply links to iTunes, Amazon, etc. which simply prove the artist's music exists. What we are looking for is significant coverage of Svensson in reliable, independent sources such as national newspapers, or established music magazines with editorial oversight, either in print or online format.

So I figured that the page must not be sources, and went to the page to add an Interview with Buck Sexton on The Kelly File. The page already had a lot of references, enough that it would have persuaded me to just tag it for improvement and move on.

Correct me if I'm wrong but every hit for a RS in that Google search is for op-eds authored by Buck Sexton. That's why there are so many hits.

It seems his work is notable. But the interviews tell us nothing about the author other than that he wrote some comics.

  • Neutral for now. While the subject is a prominent Pakistani columnist but unfortunately he fails to meet WP:NJOURNALIST and even basic GNG. I'm also unable to retrieve any information about the type of award he received. I think I'm willing to change my !vote to Keep if someone create stand-alone entries on the books - the subject authored. Yet to see if they merit one. --Saqib (talk) 17:31, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Keep Here are some links I found:
  • Journalist Zahid Hussain's new book (this is a newspaper article title used by the Dawn newspaper and then the article goes on to talk about his book in depth.
  • 'Frontline Pakistan' launched in UK (The book, "Frontline Pakistan: The Struggle with Militant Islam", written by Pakistani journalist, Zahid Hussain, has been widely appreciated by the academic, political and diplomatic circles of Britons...). This is a 'quote line' from the newspaper The News International itself.
  • Saba Imtiaz (13 December 2010). "The Relentless Rise of Islamic Militants in Pakistan: Up in the air". The Express Tribune (newspaper).  (This newspaper starts the article by saying, "While veteran journalist Zahid Hussain's articles are always worth a read,...". Then the article talks about the book written by Zahid Hussain in most of its article.
  • Zahid Hussain's book and profile as a journalist on Simon & Schuster website

If given a chance, I can go ahead and edit to incorporate these above links into his article plus anything else I find. Ngrewal1 (talk) 16:10, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

@Ngrewal1: See if you can create pages on the books authored by the subject, if they pass relevant WP:N guidelines. --Saqib (talk) 16:38, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Unsourced article with WP:FLOWERY language. » Shadowowl | talk 09:59, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Delete - has been a promotion piece for seven years, but was cut down to a neutral stub earlier this year. A couple of different accounts have popped up to restore the advertising language (quite frankly, the article could be speedily deleted as an advert) but when sifting through the revisions and looking for independent sources, I can't find anything pointing towards notability. In a way this is a good illustration of why people shouldn't try to use Wikipedia to promote themselves - this person has had their promotional bio on Wikipedia for several years, but there is still no actual significant coverage of them in any independent sources. With all the (unspecified) claims of best-seller status (local, regional, a specific bookshop, a newspaper, a country version of amazon.com...? no way of telling) I would have expected quite a bit of independent coverage, but I find only one item, this piece from Hamburger Abendblatt. One such piece is not sufficient - and the fact that there is only one makes me suspect that this is based on a press release, but my German is not good enough to tell churnalism from journalistic writing. The host of SPAs restoring the promo piece is another thing, there is definitely a COI/probable UPE issue here. --bonadea contributions talk 10:13, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Change that to a weak keep based on the dw.com reference. I agree with power-enwiki below that it is very peculiar indeed that there are not more sources - his books are self-published but even so a national bestseller would normally have some more independent coverage. "Bestseller" is a tricky concept which marketers like to apply to books that sell better than other books in one individual bookshop, for instance, but the dw.com source does seem to confirm that it is a bona fide national bestseller. --bonadea contributions talk 09:18, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

  • Keep this is very bizarre. The article is a disaster, but being the author of a multi-year best-selling book in Germany meets WP:NAUTHOR#4 , and the DW reference is reliable for that. I don't see quite the coverage I'd expect for that; possibly I'm not using the right search terms to find German references. power~enwiki (π, ν) 04:25, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

The subject is an author of multiple books but coverage is basically non-existent. The two sources currently in the article are blog posts and while 76crimes claims that Maurice Tomlinson is their writer, that alone is not enough for this source to establish any kind of significance. Searches on GNews or GBooks come up empty other than that and a generic Google search turns up no reliable source coverage either. Fails WP:BIO, WP:BASIC, WP:AUTHOR and WP:GNG.

  • Keep - Much improved since nomination. Daask (talk) 19:15, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Delete. An extensive search turned up little-to-nothing to indicate notability under GNG, AUTHOR, or any other guidelines. Most of the books and refs appear to be self-published on essentially open access platforms. The strongest support is that the author/work has been discussed on the blog of a notable gay rights activist, but that falls well short of our GNG or author guidelines for substantial independent secondary reliable source coverage.
