Whether you choose to take the unbeaten path or let the path choose you, we’ll be here when you’re ready.

Sun Valley Writers' Conference @ Sun Valley Resort
12:00 am
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 any sort of in-person gathering in order to safely host our writers and attendees on the Sun Valley Resort campus and we are making preliminary plans for next July 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 [email protected] 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 ...
