The Arts

The Gender and Sexuality Collections include the papers of poets, novelists and  playwrites, as well as the records of theater groups. While the collections include final versions of various works, it is the “nuts and bolts” materials that are most striking. Researchers can see how individuals developed their works, as well as understand the process of finally publishing those works. Included in the collections are poets, Franklin AbbottJim Elledge, and Collin Kelley; novelist, Ken Anderson, playwrite, Lynn Kear, and theater groups, Red Dyke Theatre, Sisters of No Mercy, and EstroFest Productions, Inc.
