Course summary

Overview

Our Creative Writing MA is all about growing your writing in a workshop environment. Our simple aim 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.

Your learning will be supported by our Creative Writing Fellows, who include: Patience Agbabi, Philip Gwyn Jones, Daisy Johnson, Steven Hall, and Philip Pullman.

Our graduates’ recent achievements mean that agents and publishers really listen when they hear you’re with us. All major projects gaining a distinction are looked at with a view to representation by:

  • top agents Felicity Bryan Associates (who visit us each year)
  • legendary London publisher Philip Gwyn Jones.

People like this are the gatekeepers of literary success; our aim is to get them to open those gates for you.

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.

Students can also exit with Pgdip/PgCert awards.
