Get Ready for SVWC 2022!

Get Ready for SVWC 2022!


The 2022 Sun Valley Writers’ Conference (SVWC), held July 16-18 at the beautiful Sun Valley Resort and Pavilion, is gearing up to be one of our best yet. With speakers like Judy Woodruff, Arthur C. Brooks, and Lauren Groff—as well as budding debut novelists, Black, Chicana, and Asian voices, and a hip-hop comedy troupe straight from Broadway—we will be weaving together a rich tapestry of both talent and topics.

Listen to beloved novelist Anthony Doerr discuss the power and necessity of books to build bridges between human beings, hear science journalist Elizabeth Kolbert share instructive stories about reinventing our climate-changed world, and join some of our country’s foremost thinkers as they discuss the current state of democracy in America and around the globe (Evan Osnos, Yascha Mounk, and Heather McGhee to name a few).

We also have three of our nation’s most celebrated poet-authors—Rita Dove, Natasha Trethewey, and Ocean Vuong—taking us on those introspective and importantly quieter journeys over the course of the three-day event. To learn more, check out our complete lineup of 2022 writers & presenters.

If you don’t have a pass to the 2022 Conference, fear not—there are plenty of ways to watch and get involved. We will have free lawn talks at the Sun Valley Pavilion (open to the public), a free Speaker Series in partnership with the Community Library at Forest Service Park (also open to the public), free livestreaming during the event, and free content in our online media library! We will also be selling single event tickets as we get closer to the event date.

Keep an eye on our website and social media platforms for more updates and information! And if you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our email newsletter to stay tuned-in.
