This article investigates the role of writing in a Master’s programme of Fine Arts Practice. Utilizing a single case approach, the study describes the contextualized progression of a student’s writing from the initiation of a journal to her final extended essay. Her journal, in which she writes and her supervisor responds, forms a written conversation, through which she moves from an initial position of compelled writing to an ‘auto-ethnographic’ exploration of the issues that are central to her art. Through this Bakhtinian dialogue, she constructs an internally persuasive voice and develops an expressive form for her writing.
