Researching Creative Writing

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Creative writing and academic research can seem uncomfortable bedfellows. But in this learned, practical book, Jen Webb shows how 'research practices can invigorate writing; creative practices can invigorate research; and - if properly organised and managed - creative writing can operate as a mode of knowledge generation, a way of exploring problems and answering questions that matter in our current context'. Researching creative writing enables writer-researchers to craft a toolkit that will help them produce better creative work and more rigorous research work. Jen Webb is Distinguished Professor, Creative Practice, at the University of Canberra. Researching creative writing is the sixth title in the Creative Writing Studies series.
