Inspired by Janis Jefferies’ article ‘Mangling practices: writing reflections’, and a co-writing workshop led by Julia Lockheart, this co-written response was conceived from a collaboration between two new researchers and one retired design professional. The heart of our article contains three different personal and professional stories that have accompanied us on our ‘journey of enquiry’. Sharing our personal and professional stories led us to conceive our responses as a ‘narrative hologram’, created from multiple points of view and the interplay of self-doubt and conviction as we attempt to place ourselves within our research practice.

Keywords: co-writing; mangling; narrative writing; practitioner research; self-knowledge; self-reflexive practice
