MA Creative Writing by sarahbrown




This new MA in Creative Writing provides excellent opportunities to establish and enhance your writing at an advanced level in a university context that supports both creative and professional development.

Oxford is the ideal location for writers wishing to hone their skills in
an inspirational environment, one steeped in a literary tradition but also a place of contemporary and cosmopolitan experiences. This is a new and exciting degree which brings opportunities for writers to develop their work across a wide range of genres, including screen writing. The MA in Creative Writing will be taught by novelist James Hawes (A White Merc with Fins, Rancid Aluminium, Speak for England and most recently My Little Armalite) and poet Jane Yeh (Marabou and Teen Spies), as well as Creative Writing Fellows, one of whom will be Philip Pullman.

‘It’s always great to be in on the start of something new, with no cobwebs to blow away, especially when that involves a group of highly-motivated people with serious study already under their belts’ James Hawes

‘I’m thrilled to be joining a department known for the excellence of its teaching and the quality of its students’ Jane Yeh

Compulsory modules are: Creativity, Writing and Textuality: Concepts and Practice. Major Project Elective modules: Narrative Poetry Changing Literature Writing Lives Writing Place Story Development (Screen Writing) Independent Study Module
