Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of poems and short stories sent to Ranson by other writers, including people with whom Ranson was romantically involved, especially William "Coke" Ariail III (her second husband), Miranda Cambanis, and North Carolina poet Mendy Knott. Some of the work was created by inmates that Ranson met during her prison activism, including her program, "In-house Speech and Theater Training for North Carolina Prisons," in which she taught playwriting and staged productions involving the inmates.
