The Writing series largely contains draft submissions for the newspaper, often accompanied by research, notes, interviews, newspaper clippings, and correspondence.
The Writing series is divided into the following subseries:
3.1 Early 1970s
3.2 Late 1970s
3.3 Early 1980s
3.4 Late 1980s
Writing was scattered throughout the accessions, with the original order demonstrating a variety of filing structures. The writing series has been divided into subseries roughly based on the half of each decade they originate from, this was determined to be most accessible for researchers, as writers often wrote many submissions over years. Files were often combined with their neighbours to conserve file usage, as there were many instances when there was one piece of paper in a file. Therefore, there will be records that are not necessarily “writing”. The original files sometimes indicated the section of the newspaper the writing was being done for, this has been preserved. Often only author’s names are listed as file titles, titles of articles are frequently left out, and not mentioned on the draft sheets/file contents.
File titles in the finding aid indicate with a dash “-” whether files have been conflated. File contents is divided with paper, distinguishing original file groupings.
