Congratulation to English MA student Lucy Ellis, who has been selected to give the Convocation Adress at this year's graduation ceremony. She'll be speaking at the National Arts Centre on June 14th at 2.30pm and 7.30 pm. If you can't make it in person, the ceremonies will be webcast by the Faculty of Arts. As Lucy herself says, "It's a little nerve wracking to be speaking in front of that many people, but it should be fun."
