About: Ellen was drawn to this Driftwood retreat because working solo on a large-scale project like The Great(er) Maple Syrup Heist can feel daunting. As a first time composer and lyricist, Ellen is building a brand new creation process for herself as she explores how to musicalize the heist comedy genre. While at Gillespie House, Ellen looks forward to Prince Edward County serenity, Caitie’s dramaturgical support, and camaraderie with other writers tackling epic ideas. 

Upcoming: Ellen is also developing Wonder (about physicist Harriet Brooks) and Project Qyzra (LANDO Grant finalist).
