Abstract

Writing Through is a thesis in two parts. Part A - the creative component - is a script for television, a work of nonfiction and a bridging piece of prose. The script, the pilot episode of a drama set in the north-west of England, is the story of a troubled forensic psychiatrist, his urgent assessment of a man accused of murdering his family and the impact this has on the psychiatrist's increasingly desperate state of mind. The nonfiction is a full­ length memoir and story about what it means to be a father, a husband and a man. The prose is the story of a story of a story, or a story about a writer who falls apart and then writes, in turn, about falling apart. Part B - the contextual component - considers the structure of writing through. This thesis is a unique approach to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, with Part A integrated through practice and Part B providing context. The result is a deeply personal contribution to the knowledge of creative writing and, specifically, writing through.
