Learning through creative writing.
Keane, Roisin
This research is an arts-informed inquiry into the informal learning of a group of writers to explore the ways in which writing creatively and participating in a writing group contributes to their learning. The inquiry investigates self developmental, emotional and reflexive processes which are key aspects of transformative learning. Artistic ways of knowing are incorporated in the representation of the text and in the research data. This is a reflexive inquiry to investigate the potential contribution of creative writing processes to the practice of an adult educator. Key findings include the use of creative writing practices as a personal coping strategy and the self exploration and development engaged in through creative writing.
