This blog brings together information about literary archives in the news, conferences and publications. Our book "The Boundaries of the Literary Archive: Reclamation and Representation" (Ashgate 2013) is out now!
"Reading the work of an author, it is not typical to think about what a writer does to produce a poem or a book. This exhibition focuses on the creative processes that writers go through from the idea, to the writing, to the working with publishers, to the editing, to the selling of the work. Manuscripts, letters, drafts, editorial comments, and websites are ways in which the craft of writing is shared."
