publishing coursework – literary bloomsbury

For my “Publishing Contexts” module at UCL we were given the prompt “Literary Bloomsbury” and told to run with it however we saw fit. I thought it would be fun to imagine if the authors who worked and resided in Bloomsbury at the time had access to a social media platform such as twitter. I chose to work with a few of my favourite authors – Virginia Woolf, Charles Dickens, and E.M.Forster.

While not necessarily reflecting the time they lived in I hoped to replicate what I have personally concluded their individual voices might sound like through the medium of twitter. From reading their works to learning about their lives I have concluded that Virginia Woolf was a bit nervous but confident in her editorial ability, Dickens was a hilarious grouch, and Forster was a bit of a mummy’s boy who had to hide his true nature because of the time he lived in and therefore withdrew a bit from the world.
