Archives of the Federal Writers' Project. The Federal Writers’ Project (FWP) was part of Federal One, the arts project established by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The WPA recognized that steelworkers, sharecroppers and factory workers were not the only section of the American economy hit by the Depression. Academics, novelists and playwrights were also struggling. In five years, the WPA spent millions to provide literary training and, more significantly, the opportunity for participants to observe, eat and write. This collection presents the FWP publications of all 47 states involved in the 10-year project.
