The War Horse hosted its sixth writing seminar, welcoming the cohort to Lucky Spur Ranch Retreat in Justin, Texas. Guest speakers ranged from the White House to The Washington Post, and upon graduation, Bailey Donahue and Maria Rossi participated in an hourlong live interview on WBUR. Program manager Randee Howard led the seminar, which was described by graduates as “life-changing” and “one of the most healing environments I’ve ever experienced.”
