Oxford Brookes University
Creative Writing (MA)
The Creative Writing MA at Oxford Brookes is all about growing your writing in a workshop environment. Our simple aim is to get you writing, then to provide insightful, perhaps challenging, but always supportive feedback. The entire programme revolves around this process. All your teachers here are genuine, commercially-published, practising writers; in every session you'll actually write and get reactions. We believe that this makes our course unique.
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 the development of your writing.
Applicants should normally hold a good honours degree (2.1 or above), or equivalent, in an appropriate discipline and must be able to demonstrate ability in creative writing.
A portfolio of recent creative work must be submitted consisting of 2000 words prose, or 5 poems, or a proportionate mixture of the two. Applicants may also be interviewed. If it is some time since you completed your undergraduate education and you do not meet the standard requirement, it may be possible to consider your application based on evidence of other relevant personal and professional experience, the support of your referees and your portfolio of written work.
