The literary tradition of Oxford, delivered to you

Oxford has long inspired and excited some of the world’s finest writers. JK Rowling’s Harry Potter was dreamt up in this town of ‘dreaming spires’. Marvel at Hogwart’s dining hall and Alice in Wonderland’s Tea Party.

From Oscar Wilde to Philip Pullman, Oxford has a literary pedigree that is hard to match elsewhere. Your tutor will introduce you to some of the techniques that these greats have used, and you will be encouraged to write as much as possible so that you go home with your own short stories.

You’ll also study the development of the English literary tradition, sharpen your critical eye, advance your writing skills, and broaden your horizons to discover your own voice as a writer and scholar.
