Series V: Teaching Materials, 1982-2009

Reflecting several decades as a teacher at colleges, universities, and prisons, this series holds documents relating to writing workshops, led by Jones, at various institutions from the early 1980s to the 2000s. Materials include syllabii and other teaching material, drafts of Jones' collections of prison writing, and correspondence with students.

Subseries V.1: Prison, 1982-2008

The material relating to Jones' work as a writing teacher in a number of different prisons, as well as her work with the PEN Prison Writing Committee, is contained in this subseries. Included are syllabi, assignments and other handouts, correspondence with students, examples of student work, and grant proposals. Another major part of this subseries is the material—mostly drafts and correspondence—relating to three books edited by Jones of prison workshop writing, Words Over Walls, More in than Out and Aliens at the Border. Also here are a number of cassette recordings of poetry readings at prisons, recorded in the 1990s.
