Coupey kept folders for each of the poets he was considering for this publication. Listed below are the names of each folder and the contents within each. The purpose of the publication was to create an anthology of major poetic works of British Columbia in the period between 1970 and 1980. The title, West Coast Poetry and Poetics: 1970-1980 was considered as the working title for the anthology. This project was part of Coupey’s half-year paid educational leave from Capilano College; the project was never brought to completion.

Partial manuscripts, drafts, and notes

This sub-series, consisting primarily of loose handwritten pages, consists of draft versions of poems or miscellaneous thoughts in draft form. This represents the bulk of the fonds, and was received in an unorganized state. There is next to no order between files, many of which will contain iterations of the same work.

Manuscripts and complete poems

This sub-series contains work determined to be either finished or near completion. Colin Stuart spent much of his life continually editing and revising his poems, so it is likely that multiple different versions of the same piece exists.
