AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this learned but 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.' (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

[Review] Researching Creative Writing Donna Lee Brien , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: TEXT Special Issue Website Series , no. 44 2017;

'This important and timely book is a guide to understanding and enacting research in creative writing. The text is clear and beautifully written. Its argument is coherent and its advice is useful. Its author, Jen Webb, who is a Distinguished Professor in Creative Practice at the University of Canberra, is perfectly positioned to produce such a text – well known to all in creative writing teaching and scholarship in Australia, and to many further afield. A poet and artist, Webb is a leading and eminent researcher in the field, experienced research degree supervisor and examiner, a past Chair of the Australasian Association of Writing Programs and current, or previous, editor of important journals in the field including Axon, TEXT and Meniscus.'  (Introduction)
