Call for IVWS Blog Posts

Have you recently published an essay, an article, or a book that addresses Virginia Woolf and/or her circle? Are you an artist whose work is inspired by or a response to Woolf? Would you like a way to promote your research and/or art to a wide, Woolf-interested audience?

We have more questions! Do you connect your own daily readings to Woolf’s work so that a peruse through The New Yorker becomes a catalog of Woolf references? When you are scrolling social media do you find Woolf and Bloomsbury echoes in dark academia Instagram posts and on BookTok recommendations? Do you catch yourself reimaging your own life and personal interactions through the lens of Woolf’s novels—proclaiming this or that Wednesday a Mrs. Dalloway Day or bemoaning when you pull a Mrs. Ramsay?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, please consider writing for the IVWS blog! Open to common readers, artists, teachers, and scholars alike, the IVWS blog is an online space for musing on Virginia Woolf, her life, her work, and her continuing resonance (and for promoting your own work!). Submissions can be between 500–800 words with minimal citations. We encourage submissions that explore:

  • Woolf and popular culture
  • Woolf and other authors
  • Woolf and fashion
  • Woolf around the world
  • Woolf and LGBTQIA+ 
  • Woolf and print culture
  • Woolf in surprising places
  • Woolf in the classroom
  • Woolf and London
  • Woolf’s legacy
  • Woolf reimagined
  • Woolf and feminism

This call is open year-round.
