The Crawley Writers Group, compiled by Peter Writer, tells the captivating story of this remarkable group of writers and their significant contributions to literary history.

Origins and Membership

The Crawley Writers Group was founded in 1902 by a group of university friends who shared a passion for literature, criticism, and the Bloomsbury aesthetic. Its founding members included:

  • Virginia Woolf (née Stephen),renowned novelist and essayist
  • Lytton Strachey, acclaimed biographer and critic
  • E.M. Forster, beloved novelist and short story writer
  • Leonard Woolf, Virginia Woolf's husband and publisher
  • Clive Bell, art critic and husband of Vanessa Bell
  • Vanessa Bell, artist and sister of Virginia Woolf

Over the years, the Crawley Writers Group expanded to include other notable figures in the literary world, such as Roger Fry, Saxon Sydney-Turner, and Duncan Grant.

Literary Style and Influences

The Crawley Writers Group was heavily influenced by the Bloomsbury Group, a circle of intellectuals and artists who shared a skeptical attitude towards Victorian conventions and a belief in the importance of personal expression.

In their writing, the Crawley writers rejected traditional forms and embraced experimental techniques. Their prose was characterized by its wit, introspection, and stream-of-consciousness style. They explored themes of identity, sexuality, and the complexities of human relationships.
