Abstract

One of the benefits of the growth over recent decades of creative
writing as an internationally significant discipline has been to move the
study of creative writing practice beyond subjective accounts of ‘how I
write’ towards broader issues of how knowledge is addressed by, or
incorporated into, or embodied in art; and towards questions of how being
itself is expressed through artistic means. It also encourages consideration
of how art might represent and challenge important aspects of the
zeitgeist; how it might challenge or subvert the very modes of
representation that it adopts; and the extent to which research and art can
be understood not merely as bedfellows, but as aspects of the same set of
expressions. All writing tends to constitute a kind of research into its own
condition, and into the human condition, even when it specifically
eschews any explicit research agenda or purpose.
