This ‘writing-story’ explores how reflexive and embedded methodologies may be conducive to theadoption of creative forms of expressing knowledge gained through research experiences. A sampleof my attempt to break some of the traditional boundaries of the academic prose is provided: firstly,through the discussion of the centrality of reflexivity to the development of my attempt to providean intersubjective narrative of my study; secondly, by showing the style of narrative I chose to usein my research reporting, one which involved the use of photographs to create ambience and stimulatethe readers’ engagement with the context of my research.
