The International Virginia Woolf Society is delighted to announce that Halyna Chumak (B.A. (Hons.) University of Toronto, 2015) has won the first Angelica Garnett Prize for the best undergraduate essay on Virginia Woolf. Ms. Chumak’s essay, “Some Fragment of What Privately She Called Reality”: Reality, Words, and Alternative Modes of Communication in Virginia Woolf’s Night and Day," received praise from the judges “for demonstrating how Woolf's early novel, often dismissed as "traditional," deeply engages the concerns with epistemology and communication that pervade her later fiction. Originally written as part of an Individual Studies course on Virginia Woolf supervised by Professor Melba Cuddy-Keane, the essay will be published in the Virginia Woolf Miscellany (Fall 2015). Ms. Chumak is continuing to pursue her interests in Woolf and modernism in the MA Program in English Literature at McGill University.
