The Oxford Centre for Life Writing at Wolfson College

Life-writing includes every possible way of telling a life-story, from biography and autobiography, through letters and memoir, to bio-fiction, blogs, and social media such as Tweets and Instagram stories. Writers and researchers are increasingly recognizing how much of writing is life-writing, including poetry and fiction. Through life-writing we can find out more about each other and we also understand ourselves better in relation to the past. At the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing we explore and talk about the many different forms through which lives can be written, performed, recited and even sung.
