"This collection of papers is the third publication of the Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP) conference proceedings, a practice that the Association established in 2007 in order to make freely available the valuable contributions emerging from these annual conferences. The refereed papers in this volume were presented by participants at ‘Margins and Mainstreams’, the 14th conference of the AAWP held in Hamilton, New Zealand, in November 2009. Their publication exemplifies the wide-ranging, yet also focused and in-depth, research generated by the 2009 conference. These papers represent a particular moment in Australasian research in writing, a moment in which Australasian researchers are taking a leading place within academic research frameworks internationally. One of the hallmarks of the academic discipline of writing is its engagement with the sometimes uneasy, but always stimulating and creative, space between creative practice and research."--p. 1.
