The annual Writers Workshops were held by the University of Rochester from 1970 to 1988.

Notable guests over the years included Joel Agee, Earle Birney, Malcolm Cowley, George P. Elliott, Linda, Gregg, Dolores Kendrick, D. Keith Mano, Charles Monaghan, Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Mary Lee Settle, William E. Stafford, Matthew Stevenson, and Helen Yglesias.

The collection also contains the annual flyers or programs for most of the years of the series.
