And definitely
bring as many writing samples as you can that show your strengths
as a writer. If your interviewer(s) ask for more, you're
covered. If your interviewer(s) doesn't ask for more, then you
keep your samples in your portfolio. Another advantage of
bringing more samples than you probably need is that you will
probably cover a broader range of subjects.

This is just a general question in case I'm not the only one
wondering about this: By "samples" do you mean entire documents
or perhaps just one or two sections/chapters from each document
(if the documents are long)?

Again, it depends on what strengths you're trying to display.
Are you highly productive? Maybe entire documents would support
that. Are you concise? Maybe sections or chapters would support
that. There are at least two questions you'll need to answer:
What does the prospective employer want to see, and what
strengths do you want to highlight.
