Welcome to the Evelyn Waugh Society

The Evelyn Waugh Society is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote, for the public benefit, interest and research into the life and works of the English author Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966).

The Society has members around the world, including authors, eminent academics, students, and researchers, but the majority of our members are non-specialists who simply enjoy Waugh’s books and are interested in learning more about the man and his works. Please consider joining the Society for your own interest, or simply to express your support for our mission.

We welcome the contributions of all members to our publications, conferences, events, and to the conversations about Waugh conducted over our email discussion list.

If you’re new to Evelyn Waugh and would like to find out more about the man, his works, and his place in twentieth-century English literature, you will find this brief biographical essay helpful.
