Convocation takes place on Thursday, November 24 at 9:30AM in the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
We are honoured to serve as Acting Co-Chairs of UBC Creative Writing: honoured to congratulate our newest crop of graduates; privileged to serve with faculty who put their students first; and humbled to have worked with so many amazing alumni, whose talent, passion, and courage are models in a time of uncertainty, prejudice, thoughtlessness, and fear. Your integrity is beyond question; your ability to inspire is evergreen. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you’ve done for this program, this University, and the writing community in Canada and around the world. You are our past, our present, and most definitely our future. We are stronger because of you.
Linda Svendsen and Annabel Lyon
