The only way to find your voice is to use it.” – Austin Kleon

On this course, we’ll help you do just that.

English Literature with Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes will provide you with a solid grounding in literature since the Renaissance, and the space to explore your own creative writing abilities. You’ll experiment with new forms and genres. You’ll push yourself as a writer and a reader. Whether you’re exploring travel writing or screenplays, you’ll discover new strengths, areas of interest and new passions.

You’ll also shape your writing by studying different literary voices and how they’ve been influenced by the issues of their time. And through workshops led by your tutors, you’ll examine some of the most pressing issues of today, thinking about how they impact your own writing style.

Ours is a supportive community. We’ll help you develop the skills you’ll need to succeed not just as a writer but also as an engaged citizen of the world.
