Win a copy of A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

‘A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write.’


Virginia Woolf’s now-classic essay was originally published in 1929, and was based on a series of lectures Woolf gave at Cambridge University in 1928. Considered a seminal feminist text, it’s unfortunate that her argument for both a literal and figurative space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by men still holds sway. Whether in agreement or not, Woolf’s words will certainly spur thought and debate, with subjects touched on in the essay continuing to be relevant today – for example, the depiction of women in fiction by men; women being denied education and access to finance.
We are pleased to have ten copies of Penguin Books’ beautiful ‘Great Ideas’ publication of A Room of One’s Own to giveaway to lucky entrants. For your chance to win, take a look below…
