A series of files of correspondence kept by Westall. Correspondents include other writers, illustrators, translators, editors and individuals involved in children's literature in other capacities. Correspondence with other writers frequently discusses subjects relating to the publication and reception of Westall's and other writers' work. The files also include correspondence relating to work for periodicals: such correspondence is listed under the name of the periodical, rather than the correspondent. Correspondence was frequently labelled 'File: Literary Contacts' by Westall. The quantity and detail of correspondence varies greatly, from one letter or card to detailed correspondence over several years.
