Jamie Woods

Creative Writing Tutor

I’m a writer with an MA in Creative Writing from Cardiff University.

I’ve had short stories published in Evergreen Review, The Lonely Crowd, and The First Line, amongst others; as well as a number of critical and non-fiction pieces in Wales Arts Review and various blogs, fanzines and other publications.

Social media and online communities are my other passion, and I currently manage an award-winning community forum for a major UK brand

While working in a call-centre, I enrolled at the Open University as a mature student – I liked books, so why not study them? 
A part-time Humanities course led to a part-time degree, which was then followed by a full-time MA in Creative Writing at Cardiff University.
My critical work focussed on identity and on digital learning environments and techniques – how best to incorporate the technology we have available to us to make teaching and learning Creative Writing easier.

Since completing my MA, I’ve been busy working in the fast-moving world of Social Media for a major brand: leading the online community; creating, curating and editing content; and working with PR, marketing, and digital teams to ensure that the voice of the brand is consistent and customers get a clear message.

With my background in writing and my professional experience in the constantly-evolving online digital world, I’m delighted to be a teacher on the Digital Publishing course from 2019, as well as various creative writing modules.

My research interests are: 21st Century fiction, the short story, epistolary literature, Katherine Mansfield, Jeffrey Eugenides, Ali Smith; digital communities, digital identities and online behaviours; indie and alternative music from 1976-1999.
