SVWC 2021 Update

If we can . . . we will.

Thank you for your patience as we are still formulating our plans for the 2021 Conference. Our highest priority is the safety of our attendees, writers, and staff. While we do not yet know exactly what shape SVWC will take next year, we do know that even with optimistic planning, the experience must differ from years past. We anticipate that we will have to reimagine the Conference format in order to safely host our writers and attendees on the Sun Valley Resort campus. We are cautiously making preliminary plans in the hopes that we will be able to hold some sort of in-person gathering during our normal dates of July 17-20 with a scaled-back program and limited attendance.

We are also consulting with legal and medical advisors and reaching out to writers. Just as soon as we have a better sense of how we can proceed, we will provide more information about our plans and any options to purchase passes. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate any converted 2020 passes in 2021.

If you have any questions, please email us at or call 208.726.5454.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we work through this challenging situation and please stay well. 


Pass Cancellation Policy:

If your plans change and you are no longer able to use your pass, you may request a cancellation up until May 15 of the Conference year and we will issue you a refund (less a $35 fee per pass). We regret that we cannot issue refunds after that date.
