The Sun Valley Writers’ Conference extends special thanks to the remarkable volunteers who generously donate their time and skills for the benefit of the conference. Volunteers are asked to set aside two days for the conference and to attend one pre-conference training session. We will thank our volunteers by inviting them to listen to conference presentations the remaining two days. Those interested in volunteering for the first time should fill out our online application OR contact Maria Sanchez, SVWC Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer@svwc.com for more information.

Jesse and Rory Cole, two of our local SVWC youth volunteers (at left), had this to say about the conference:

“The Sun Valley Writers’ Conference has given me the opportunity to learn from incredible authors who have been successful in leaving their mark on literature. It has been so inspiring to see other people achieve their dreams; it makes me believe that I can too.” -Jesse

“The 2014 Writers’ Conference was a life-changing experience for me. The Conference allows Wood River students to meet their heroes and to listen to the experiences of people they never thought they would meet. It is an amazing privilege and opportunity.” -Rory
