I am Keith Wright’s daughter: Writing Things I ‘Almost’ Cannot Say is a personal and provocative perspective. Using creative writing and storying I piece/peace together my relationship to/with my father. Always a strong and unsettling presence in my life, his unexpected death forces me toward reconciliation of tensions, identities, wounds and memories. Writing/Wrighting/Righting my stories into being, my particular points of view at points in time, and examining this conflicted yet foundational relationship, helps me remember what I have learned and helps me reclaim what matters to me. Writing the things I ‘almost’ cannot say—and have not been able to say for most of my life—is a storying in and through the dark, a storying in and through the wounding, and a storying in and to healing. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group
