Program Description:

The Creative Writing MA at Oxford Brookes will help your writing grow through work with established writers, industry professionals, teaching specialists and your peers, whilst you experience this most literary of cities.

From the opening evening of your course – where previous speakers have included international bestseller Philip Pullman, Booker winner, Howard Jacobson and Pulitzer/Orange winner, Marilynne Robinson – through to the showcase for agents and publishers following your graduation, our aim is to make your time at Brookes a decisive stage in your development.
