There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in creative writing whilst a student within the Faculty and a number of our academics are also published authors. Although the course does not include a specific paper on creative writing, the flexible nature of the teaching and the individual tuition/support provide opportunities for a wide range of writing and study.
Oxford's English Faculty also has some of the country's leading poets among its lecturers. They and Oxford's visiting Professor of Poetry give regular lectures and workshops. If you already write, or want to start, Oxford has been a source of inspiration to writers in a range of genres, and a range of student-run events and publication opportunities mean that you can use your spare time as an undergraduate to develop your literary skills without the pressure of having them formally assessed.
Whilst the Faculty itself does not offer courses in creative writing, there are courses available within the University through the Department of Continuing Education.
