The Living Archives Series documents the presentations of the panels sponsored yearly by the Caucus since its founding within the League in 1982, and includes various texts, correspondences, and other works significant to its history and the discussion of women and language in poetry. The series has become part of Women and Gender Studies at universities and colleges University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario.  It has also garnered positive reviews, such as in Canadian Literature, a preeminent refereed academic journal. Sumptuous high-cost, perfect-bound, glossy editions have been published in past years by partnering with book publishers such as Quarry Press and Broken Jaw Press.
