Attendee Resources

If you attend the writers’ conference you will be spoiled within an inch of your life by SVWC staff.

On your first day at registration you’ll see our stunning amphitheater where many talks are given. Close by, at an old-fashioned Opera House, there will be a movie followed by a discussion with the filmmaker. An hour before the opening event, friends gather near the Pavilion for an outdoor reception. Summer days are long and usually warm (in spite of the occasional mountain storm or chill)  and it will stay light until close to 10 pm.

Each day begins with continental breakfast on the Sun Valley Lodge terrace.  As the day unfolds, talks, sessions and lively picnic lunches are all within easy walking distance.

The event concludes in the afternoon of the fourth day with an alfresco lunch on the fabled terrace of the Sun Valley Lodge, which overlooks an outdoor ice rink, home to Olympic Gold medalists as well as local skaters. No wonder E. L. Doctorow has called SVWC “the best summer camp” he’s ever been to.
