Vara Neverow and Kristin Czarnecki, editors of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany, have issued a call for papers for the fall 2013 issue, #84.
The theme is Woolf and animals. From the animal nicknames she shared with loved ones; to the purchase of “a beautiful cat, a Persian cat” with her first earnings as a writer; from the cawing rooks in To the Lighthouse to the complex life of Flush to the disturbing animal imagery in Between the Acts, animals play a key role in Woolf’s life and writing.
The editors invite submissions discussing animals in Woolf both fictional and actual. They also welcome articles that align Woolf with animal elements in the work and lives of others.
