She has published ten novels and taught in various colleges and universities. Godwin lives in Woodstock, N.Y. The collection includes literary material, chiefly typescript drafts and stages of proofs, notes, background research, correspondence, and marketing and financial materials related to Godwin's published and unpublished books, book reviews, essays, excerpts, libretti, novellas, and short stories. There are also publicity materials, including correspondence, clippings, texts of speeches, and audiocassettes and videotapes, that document appearances, speaking engagements, honors, awards, interviews, book reviews, and articles about Godwin and her work. Personal materials include correspondence with family members, friends, fans, and other literary figures, including John Irving, Kurt Vonnegut, and Joyce Carol Oates. Family correspondence pertains to members of the Cole, Godwin, Krahenbuhl, Rogers, and Zeigler families, but the bulk documents Godwin's relationships with her mother, Kathleen Cole, and with her grandmother, Edna Rogers Krahenbuhl. Family materials also include research and writings by Kathleen Cole; early writings by Gail Godwin; and personal items belonging to family members. Other materials include writing notebooks; notes on writing and teaching; photographs; research notes; a small amount of family history materials; scholarly writing about Godwin; drawings; materials related to St. Hilda's Press; and writings by others. Dream diaries and journals have been added to the collection beginning with the 2006 addition.
