The WPA's Federal Writers' Project (FWP) gave many struggling journalists, novelists, poets, etc. jobs during the tough times of the 1930s. They wrote and published well over 1,000 books, pamphlets, magazine articles, and more. And poems written by FWP writers were included in the 1937 WPA book, American Stuff: An Anthology of Prose and Verse.
