As this selective list shows, Welty continued to write for publication into her mid-seventies, and for a decade afterward she cooperated with several ventures to bring uncollected work to press. Welty’s full list of publications, which includes appearances in magazines and newspapers as well as in the books of others, limited editions of stories and essays, and a great many translations, can be found in Noel Polk’s indispensable bibliography of her writing: Welty: A Bibliography of Her Work. Jackson: UP of Mississippi, 1994. The Welty Collection, ed. Suzanne Marrs (Jackson: UP of Mississippi) is a thorough guide to the great trove of Welty’s papers and photographs at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in Jackson.
