Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


This essay provides an overview of how the author used new literacies with a group of African American women to inquire into their expressions of romantic heterosexual love. The author shares an artifact from the inquiry —a collaborative poem — and points to the ways the women's literacies and fragmented selves advanced the group's understanding of love, partnership, and integral self-worth. The author considers how creative writing advanced epistemological development among the group.
