Abstract

In this article, we undertake a methodological and creative exploration of poetic representation in children’s geographies. Drawing on qualitative approaches to poetry as a method, we consider how poetic techniques have the potential to bring us into children’s experiences in different ways and inspire more playful engagement with our research data more broadly. We present an illustrated series of research poems derived from our project on children’s perspectives on nature and adventurous nature play in New Zealand. We invite readers and viewers to engage with these works and consider what disrupting traditional prose representations of research can add to critical children’s geographies and beyond.
