Writer-in-residence reflects on time at UWindsor

Donato Mancini’s time at the University of Windsor provided him with something many writers yearn for — the opportunity to focus exclusively on his craft.

“That’s what everybody craves and wishes for,” the writer-in-residence said. “It’s why people take themselves off the grid and unplug for weeks at a time.

“The amount of progress you can make in a few really focused weeks is so much more than a whole year of working in fits and starts and in time off.”
