Abstract

People change, often in profound ways, when they engage in creative practices,
but understanding the nature of these changes and the reasons why they take
place continues to challenge adult educators. This book takes a close look
at the effects of participating in postgraduate programs in what the author
terms “creative life writing,” and makes the case for considering the students’
experiences as a form of transformative learning. The author seeks to extend
our understanding of the nature of transformative learning as a result of these
analyses. In the introduction and in the opening chapter Hunt details the
Creative Writing and Personal Development Programmes that took place at
Sussex University between 1996 and 2010. The remainder of the book is divided
into four sections
