Strategic Directions for Research in Writing: A Wish List

Jennifer Webb, Donna Lee Brien

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To celebrate and commemorate the first decade of TEXT, this article looks forward and suggests directions for research projects focused on creative writing in higher education institutions. It was during this decade, and in the past twenty issues of TEXT (twenty-four if we include the special issues) that debates about the institutional location, orientation and praxis of writing were initiated, shaped and furthered. It is possible to trace a shift, over this period, away from pedagogical issues and towards research-oriented questions that explore the role of creative writing in the academy and the world, and demonstrate that as a discipline writing is capable of combining conventional academic rigour with creative thought.
