Join us on Thursday 18 April to learn more about our Diploma in Creative Writing.

Meet the Course Director, Dr John Ballam, and have your questions answered. This event will not be recorded so attendees can chat freely and ask questions – so don't miss your chance to participate!

With expert tuition and small class sizes, the part-time Undergraduate Diploma in Creative Writing gives you the opportunity to explore and develop your craft by strengthening your ability in four major areas of literary activity — prose, poetry, drama and analytical reading. You will also have the opportunity to specialise in the medium of your choice.

There are two ways to study. The in-person pathway takes place on weekends in Oxford and offers a rich combination of seminars, one-to-one tutorials and group discussions. The online pathway with a summer school in Oxford, replicates the in-person structure, using a variety of media to offer a stimulating and challenging learning environment.

No prior formal qualifications are needed.
