Welcome to the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain

Honorary President: Dame Eileen Atkins

The Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain is a non-profit organisation that aims to raise the profile of Virginia Woolf and promote the reading and discussion of her works.

Formed in June 1998 the Society is supported by an Executive Council of elected volunteers (read more about the Society’s Constitution). An Editorial Committee produces the Virginia Woolf Bulletin three times a year (January, May and September), as well as a number of other publications. Woolf-related events and talks, in-person or online, open to members only or at a discount to members, are held throughout the year.

The Society welcomes new members from all around the world. If you are interested in joining, see the Membership page. There are discounts for students, five-year memberships, and part-year memberships.

On this website you will find information about the Society and information about Virginia Woolf herself. Under Virginia Woolf Resources you will find a wealth of Woolf information, including a short biography, bibliographies, articles, illustrations and links to related sites. If you want to know more about Woolf, her works and the Society, the best place to start is with the links below. The Useful Links area provides a guide to websites of other Woolf societies, archives, publishers and bookshops.
