Welcome to the Virginia Woolf Blog! I’m Rebecca Brooks and I’m grateful that you took the time to visit my site.

The Virginia Woolf Blog explores the life and legacy of my favorite author, Virginia Woolf. The blog covers all aspects of Virginia Woolf’s life, from her childhood to her death.

The goal of the Virginia Woolf Blog is to celebrate Woolf’s life and work and give readers a clearer understanding of what she was really like. Using passages from Woolf’s diaries, letters and various biographies, the blog aims to show readers the real Virginia Woolf, not the sad tragic figure many people see her as.

The Virginia Woolf Blog also covers news on Virginia Woolf-related topics such as recently released books and movies, book reviews and etc.


The blog is owned and operated entirely by me, Rebecca. I’m a freelance journalist and a longtime Virginia Woolf fan from New England. I first discovered Virginia Woolf during college when I read “A Room of One’s Own” on summer break after my freshman year. I was instantly mesmerized and began to read everything I could by and about Virginia Woolf.

I earned a B.A. in English/Journalism from the University of New Hampshire and got my start in journalism working at numerous small-town newspapers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. After working in the news industry for a while, I decided to become a blogger and finally write about the things that I wanted to write about, which included Virginia Woolf. I’m very much enjoying it and I hope all of you like reading the blog as much as I like writing it.

If you have any feedback, article ideas or just want to say hi, follow the blog on Twitter @vwoolfblog or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/virginiawblog or just leave a comment below.

Thank you for visiting, fellow Virginia Woolf fans!

    Hi Rebecca
    I just discovered your blog and read a few topics. I am a writer/artist and have been a Woolf fan myself for the last 40 odd years (yes, 40! goodness me).In the eigthies I edited a book about her in have since written several articles here and there – in German. My publisher in Germany has recently asked me to write a little book about Woolf for next year, and therefore I am reading new articles etc. and thus came upon your site. It is very nicely done and very informative, congratulations.
    So, from Woolf fan to Woolf fan I wish you all the best.
