Virginia Woolf: Memories of St Ives & its influence on her writing

23/08/2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


On Wednesday 23rd August at 2pm, Sarah Latham Phillips MA will be talking about ‘Virginia Woolf: Memories of St Ives and its influence on her writing’.

Virginia Woolf’s novels and short stories are highly innovative and creative in their design. Her imagery is intensely visual and the summer months spent in St Ives during her childhood were hugely influential on her writing.

Sarah has been studying Bloomsbury art and literature for thirty years and is published on Virginia Woolf as a Cubist Writer. She has spoken at the St Ives September Festival every year from 2016. Sarah is a member of the Executive Council of the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain and was a speaker for the National Portrait Gallery Exhibition: Art, Life and Vision in 2014, curated by Frances Spalding.
