Passes & Tickets

Conference Passes

Our 2020 Conference dates will be Saturday, July 18 – Tuesday, July 21. Passes will go on sale here to the general public in early February 2020. If you would like to join our Family of Donors and participate in the Donor Priority Pre-sale, which is open now until January 31, 2020, please visit our Support SVWC page.

The cost of a full pass is $950 and includes all Pavilion events and breakout sessions, as well as breakfast and lunch. Please check back in early 2020 for more information.

And remember . . . it’s never too early to make your lodging reservations for next year!

Single Event Tickets

A limited number of individual tickets are available each year for purchase to a selection of SVWC Pavilion talks.

Tickets will go on sale in June 2020.

Free Events

Select afternoon/evening talks are broadcast to the screen on the Pavilion lawn and open to the public at no charge each year.

Advance reservations are NOT required for these Lawn Talks.


Additionally, we are proud to continue our partnership with The Community Library in Ketchum to host one of our speakers at the library in a talk that will be open to the public the week before the Conference. Check back in 2020 for more information on the Library Talk.

Students & Teachers

As a part of our efforts to share the Writers’ Conference with our community, local students and teachers are invited to attend Pavilion talks for free, as space is available.
