Community Outreach

Your support helps us expand and deepen our community outreach efforts in the Sun Valley area and beyond. We offer scholarships and fellowships for budding writers, free talks during the conference for the public, and have an expanding schools program, including our first fall schools speaker in 2019.

Volunteer Program

We couldn’t accomplish this event without the help of our many loyal volunteers, who come back year after year to help with the heavy lifting of making the Conference a reality.
