AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This practice-led research paper considers, from a writer's point of view, the linked notions of masking and unmasking as they apply to creative practice in the field of writing fiction. It examines these notions within the framework of existing theory relating to the construction of 'Children's' and 'young adult' literature' drawn from scholars including Nodelman, Hunt, Rose and Immel. Taking as a starting point the question of whether 'unmasking' in fiction is truly possible, the paper considers both the creative process behind and critical reaction to, the author's 2008 young adult novel Into White Silence, and measures both process and response against the impact of masking and unmasking in the making of that particular work.'
