NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!
Writing Seminar for Military Spouses Application
The Carey Institute for Global Good
September 27-October 1, 2022
The War Horse hosts weeklong, expenses-paid writing seminars twice yearly. This fall we’re hosting our fifth writing seminar—this one for military spouses—to help train the next generation of military writers to find and shape their stories.
When: September 27 to October 1, 2022
Where: The Carey Institute for Global Good | Rensselaerville, NY
The War Horse’s writing seminars bring together world-class journalists, authors, agents, and publishers with veterans and military family members for off-the-record Q&As. Our seminars are where the best writers of today pay it forward to the most promising writers of tomorrow.
At The War Horse, we don’t just accept difference—we support and celebrate it, and our newsroom and our community thrives on it. We want, in turn, to ensure that a wide variety of voices are present and represented in all that we do. We welcome all current and former military spouses of current service members or Post-9/11 veterans to apply for consideration, regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, income level, disability, gender identity, veteran status, or other personal characteristics. Service dogs are welcome.
The War Horse’s writing seminars are open to writers with varying degrees of experience. Published work is NOT required for acceptance.
The War Horse will cover the cost of travel, and provide meals and lodging.
Our seminar is a residential program designed specifically to encourage community building and bonding among the group in the off-hours. We expect, in turn, that attendees will lodge overnight and not commute to and from the site.

We did a lot of staying in our lane as spouses, and kind of kept quiet, but in reality we have all of these incredible stories to be told. To be able to be offered this week to do nothing but reflect on the life we’ve had thus far and to dedicate that to writing and making something meaningful from that was really incredible.
