  • Creative Writing

    At Oxford Brookes you can study Creative Writing in all three years of your degree. Our tutors are internationally acclaimed writers who are dedicated to helping you find your own writing style. Our students benefit from studying in one of the world’s most vibrant cultural cities where literary festivals, events and celebrations regularly attract some of the world’s top international stars.

    The Creative Writing modules provide a detailed understanding of how aspects of literary texts (such as dialogue, characterization, and voice) function from the point of view of a writer. The set tasks challenged me to stretch beyond the limitations of my own experience, and to be more receptive of the varied forms creative inspiration can take. I truly value the constructive feedback I received from the tutors and my peers, which has helped me to become a better writer.

    Dr Lalwani is very supportive and encouraged open discussion of the tasks we completed each week for homework. I found the feedback and constructive criticism I received from my peers extremely important in helping me to develop my writing style. Learning how to read as a writer is the most valuable idea I have taken away with me, and I am already missing the seminars. If you have aspirations of one day becoming a writer, or are looking for a different perspective on the writing process, I highly recommend the Creative Writing modules.
