Boxes 50-53

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of writings by others from 1970-2010, including both poetry and prose by Higgins' friends, colleagues, and students. There is a manuscript of Neil Astley's The End of My Tether (2002); Astley was Higgins' editor at Bloodaxe Books. There are also poems, short stories, and essays by Eva Bourke, Anne Kennedy, Joan McBreen, Patsy Murphy, Julia Roddy, and Moya Roddy. The series includes poetry by the students of workshops taught by Higgins such as the Castlebar and Galway Neighborhood Youth Project, which resulted in the anthology, Fizz: Poetry of Resistance and Challenge (2005). There are also multiple essays and research papers about Higgins and her poetry.
