The writer-in-residence program at The Mill gave me the space, not just physically but also mentally, to focus on my writing. It allowed me to dedicate time to my practice, and to grow it through new opportunities. I was able to expand my repertoire to include pieces about dance and residencies. This was challenging, but also rewarding as I was able to learn a new language, and to explore a different discipline.” - Eleanor Scicchitano, 2017-18 Writer in Residence
