Brief Description:

This collection contains the papers from the Associated Writers Program from 1980-1993.

The bulk of the Associated Writers Program collection contains brochures, newsletters, job listings and degree catalogs from the organization to the University.  The Associated Writers Program attempted to aid writers through contests based on poetry, nonfiction, novel and short fiction.  The collection holds several brochures announcing the winner’s names and published work.  The majority of the collection’s folders are comprised of job listings that AWP often sent out to writers and participating universities.  Other documents include letters asking for financial aid in the wake of federal budget cuts and forms for advertising in newsletters.
