This article is a reflexive methodological opening into changing writing by transforming the event of writing. Drawing from feminist theorization and the recent calls for writing differently, the eventness of academic writing was attested. It was explored how experimenting with and altering the writing events opens up potentialities for change in us as researchers, and in the practices of academic knowing in a wider sense. Three autoethnographic experiments were shared in transforming the writing through creative fiction, corporeal movement, and collective speculation. Introducing an event-based mode to the academic thinking and writing practices provided us with means to broaden our scholarly imagination by writing from and with our feeling, sensing, and moving bodies, which allowed us to ask tentative questions and speculate wildly.
