Scope and Content Note

The poetry and prose writing by others collected here represents unpublished material that has been sent personally to Ormsby. As editor of The Honest Ulsterman, most of the unpublished writing sent to him was submitted for publication, and all such manuscript and typescript drafts are kept in The Honest Ulsterman submissions subseries. Many of the items in the writings by others series are actually worksheets from sessions of the Belfast Group attended by Ormsby during the 1971-1972 academic year.
