This series is comprised of poetry manuscripts which were submitted to Michael Schmidt, but which were not ultimately published by Carcanet. Although some of the book files in CPA/1/1/1 contain manuscript material which was not selected for inclusion in a published volume (as in Elizabeth Jennings's book files for example), the manuscripts listed here were rejected in their entirety. In some cases they were ultimately taken on by other publishers. Some of them are accompanied by covering letters, and in John Balaban's case by a bundle of associated correspondence.
