The Swearing-in Ceremony for an Honorary Fellowship for Ms Carol Ann Duffy (the current Poet Laureate) will take place at Homerton this Wednesday, 6.00pm, in the Combination Room. Note that attendance is by invitation only.
At the ceremony there will also be a presentation to the winner of the Elizabeth Fletcher Prize for Poetry. The Prize was open to all students at Homerton; 24 entries were received.
Maria Nikolajeva, Professor and Scholar of Literature at the Faculty of Education and one of the judges, writes about the Elizabeth Fletcher Prize on her blog. A blog where she has also documented, over the last two years, the ups and downs of her journey from her previous home in Sweden to her post here at Cambridge.
