Who's your user-base - will your users all get any instruction before they
begin to contribute, or will some participants need an intro to wiki and a
little "yes, you really can click 'edit'" hand-holding?

Do you already know what most of the categories will be, so you can
pre-populate a list and then have an "Other" category, where material can go
until it gets reviewed and distributed?

Have a look at the "NewPage" recipes - maybe one of these would be useful:

   - NewPageBox <http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/NewPageBox> :
   Provide a form to create new pages (simple)
   - NewPageBoxPlus <http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/NewPageBoxPlus>: As
   NewPageBox with additional options
   - New Page Form <http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/NewPageForm> :
   Adds a new page using a form (more advanced)
   - Add PageForm <http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/AddPageForm> : Add
   pages without having to place their name on another page first

Do you want to use the existing "Category" tagging, or will you use
wikigroups to organize you content?  If tagging, then get your Category
wikigroup set up:
1) Create Category.Category
2) Create Category.GroupFooter
