2018 WRITING SEMINAR FOR WOMEN VETERANS AT BOULDER CREST RETREAT

Thank you to all of our generous donors and supporters, the Starbucks Foundation, and Cohen Veterans Network, who donated to support our second-annual writing seminar. The week-long retreat brought together a dozen Post-9/11 women veterans together with leading military reporters, veteran advocates, educators, and mental health leaders. During the week, Fellows toured the Washington Post newsroom and received one-on-one professional development from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists and authors of New York Times Bestsellers. We hope you enjoy some of the photographs taken throughout our week at Boulder Crest Retreat

This seminar, in one single weekend, challenged my thoughts and feelings through my own written words. I developed an appreciation for my story and a desire to positively impact others by sharing it. I also grew my tribe with the most inspirational women I’ve ever met.

This seminar let me discuss my experiences of war in a open environment where others understood and also wanted to move on from. It truly did distance myself from the war and gave me hope to turn traumatic experiences into effective leadership and development traits.

It’s good to have a solid network of people we can turn to for help. It seems like a good foundation is in place.
