English Literature & Creative Writing introduces students to a diverse range of literary styles and techniques, to develop their literary knowledge, creative writing skills and ability to form critical response. During the course students discuss famous literary works, both classic and modern, including works of fiction, poetry and play. The Creative Writing aspect of the course enables students to develop their own writing techniques and ideas, drawing inspiration from both the texts studied and from the wealth of British literary history available to our students whilst studying in the UK. Also included is the exciting opportunity to participate in creative workshops, as well as see theatre productions of some of the literary texts studied.
Oxford College Summer School’s English Literature & Creative Writing programme is a unique two week residential programme situated in the heart of historic Oxford.
We have created our English Literature & Creative Writing programme at Oxford College Summer School to further our students’ appreciation of English literature, as well as to develop their creative writing techniques. Through a series of interactive lessons and workshops, students improve their ability to effectively participate in lectures and tutorials, as well as developing their ability to research and critically analyse a variety of texts.
At Oxford College Summer School, our dynamic tutors ensure that the English Literature & Creative Writing programme focuses on learning through communicating, meaning that all students participate actively in spoken English at all times.
The creative writing aspect of the programme allows students to develop their own creative techniques, drawing inspiration from the literary works studied and the wealth of British literary history available to our students while studying in the United Kingdom. As a class, students will create an anthology of their creative efforts and their programme will culminate with a presentation of their works.
A strong understanding of literature and the ability to write well for a range of audiences can open up a lot of opportunities.
