Research: Reclaiming the Past

My research article on ‘Reclaiming the Past: Exploring the Role of Primary Sources in Creative Writing Research’ has been published in Writing in Practice: The Journal of Creative Writing Research. The article focuses on finding and using sources in the creation of narrative nonfiction and memoir, and how these can be reconciled with authorial anxieties about remembering, reassembling, and reclaiming the past.
