About

The Creative Writing programme at the Oxford Brookes University is all about growing your writing in a workshop environment.

Overview

The simple aim of the Creative Writing programme at the Oxford Brookes University is to get you writing, then to provide insightful, sometimes challenging, but always supportive feedback.

All your teachers are genuine, commercially-published, practising writers. In every session you’ll actually write and get reactions. We believe that this makes our course unique. Your time here will be a decisive stage in the development of your writing.

Career prospects

Many of our alumni have gone on to win literary prizes and have their own writing published. 

A significant number of successful MA students continue into further research and careers in academia, either at Oxford Brookes or at other institutions.
