What feels true? : sifting through belongings

Clarke, Rebecca (2012) What feels true? : sifting through belongings. Masters by Research by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.


This practice-led research project explores how, after a successful first experience writing a poetic solo theatre work derived largely from autobiography, I sought to find personal connection and satisfying ‘authenticity’ in the writing of a more difficult, nonautobiographical second work. Via reflections on practice, through an autoethnographic narrative, the project also evokes a practitioner’s struggle to self-educate, survive personal, life-changing loss, and manage heightened professional stakes. In doing so, it reveals essential lessons in acknowledging, accepting and following ‘what feels true’, to remember and consider in future writing.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
