The fonds consists of a variety of materials, but the focus is the creative writing of Michael Bullock, in many genres. Represented in collections are prose and poetry, both published and unpublished, along with hundreds of individual works, covering not only poetry and prose poems, but academic essays, autobiographical accounts, and plays, as well as a prodigious amount of notes. The fonds also contains material relating to Bullock's work as a translator, and includes a variety of genres translated into English from the original French, German, or Italian. The fonds also includes correspondence of both a professional and personal nature. Dating from 1935, the correspondence illustrates well the business life of a professional writer, yet also contains a wealth of personal correspondence that helps to solidify Bullock's stature as a writer both locally and internationally. Interesting figures such as Marcel Bealu, Max Frisch, and Joy Kogawa are intermingled with less well-known artists, friends, and family in the correspondence, and provide valuable commentary, over nearly 70 years, into the creative path chosen by Bullock. The fonds consists of 20 series and a single sub-series: Assorted Poems, Collected Poems, Prose (including Lotte Bullock Sub-Series), Plays, Essays and Criticism, Artwork, Works in Translation, Correspondence, Notes, Reviews, Melmoth Vancouver, Photographs, Audiotape Recordings, Diaries Series, Biographical Notes, Conferences, Lectures, and Readings, Promotional Material, Financial Records, Published Material, and Miscellaneous.
