Abstract: Creative nonfiction: alchemy at work seeks to integrate and explore research and writing options available through the genre of creative nonfiction. It contains an exegesis, 'The transformative possibilities of creative nonfiction and immersion research', and a creative project, 'Iron Men: alchemy at work'. As a whole, the thesis aims to answer the question of how the techniques and approaches of creative nonfiction can be used to investigate a grassroots youth intervention strategy in a way that uses observation and description to reveal the core factors of its success and also integrates autobiographical content in order to highlight possibilities of social and personal transformation.
