Workshops and Events [series]:

Workshops and Events (1 linear foot), as the name of the series suggests, is divided into two subseries. The Workshops subseries documents some of Madgett's activity as a teacher of creative writing (and occasionally, of self-publishing), with material arranged by type: correspondence, teaching materials, and ephemera. Teaching materials include lesson plans and hand-outs that Madgett prepared over the years, including many that discuss her own poems and creative process.

The Events subseries is further divided into Naomi Long Madgett and Lotus Press. The former documents some of Madgett's many public appearances and honors throughout her long career, including awards ceremonies, readings, lectures, and radio and television broadcasts (some of which took the form of interviews with the author). Under each type of event, those for which there exists significant material are filed chronologically by name; such material includes correspondence (typically in the form of invitations to participate), ephemera, and for many events, typed or handwritten notes for speeches and presentations (or transcripts, in the case of broadcasts). Lotus Press events are those readings organized by Madgett for the benefit of the press and its authors, including the 15th, 20th, and 30th anniversary celebrations.
