Ellipsis is the intra-collegiate literary festival of St. Joseph’s College of Commerce.

Ellipsis, a sequence of three dots, can express what a lot of words can’t. Imagination begins after ellipsis. The reader becomes the author after ellipsis. Literature lives in the minds of readers after ellipsis.

The festival has three sections:

Breaking Waves – Speaking events

Drifting Earth – Writing events

Rising Tide – Sketching Events

The festival will conclude with Divergence Debates, a grand student debate on a contemporary issue.
