Philip Pullman to be Creative Writing Fellow for MA in Creative Writing

Philip Pullman has agreed to be one of the new Fellows for Oxford Brookes' forthcoming MA in Creative Writing, and will be launching the course in September.

The new and exciting MA will bring opportunities for writers to develop their work across a wide range of genres, including screen writing.

Teaching on the course will be novelist James Hawes (A White Merc with Fins , Rancid Aluminium and most recently Speak for England) and poet Jane Yeh (Marabou and Teen Spies), as well as other Creative Writing Fellows who will be announced shortly.

“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,” says James.

“I’m thrilled to be joining a department known for the excellence of its teaching and the quality of its students,” adds Jane.

Connections with the Brookes Poetry Centre, the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, and access to the Brookes Booker Prize archive, as well as the wider publishing and creative industries of Oxford and London mean that the Creative Writing MA will be vibrant, dynamic and challenging.

Teaching is in both group and individual sessions alongside events with visiting publishers, editors and agents and the MA in Creative Writing can be studied either Full-Time over 1 year, or Part-Time over 2 years.
