2024 Passes SOLD OUT

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary

Thirty years ago, the founders of the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference sat around a kitchen table and dreamt up what would become today’s premier literary conference. Over the last three decades, more than 500 poets, playwrights, historians, novelists, journalists, musicians, and more have graced the stage at SVWC.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate this momentous occasion.
