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.
