Sun Valley Writers Conference

Join us for the 2024 Sun Valley Writers Conference on Saturday, July 20 through Monday, July 22 at the stunning Sun Valley Resort and Pavilion. As always, this year’s ground-breaking presentations fuse together a thoughtfully curated mix of today’s top issues and insights, offered by the brightest thinkers and writers of our time. 


Celebrating our 30th Anniversary!

Thirty years ago, the founders of the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference sat around a kitchen table and dreamt up what would become today’s premier literary conference. Over the last three decades, more than 500 poets, playwrights, historians, novelists, and musicians have graced the stage at SVWC, including novelists Alice McDermott and Hernan Diaz, poets Naomi Shihab Nye and Rita Dove, and longtime friend of the Conference, Frank McCourt. “Thirty years is a long time,” writes SVWC Associate Director Anne Taylor Fleming, “but it feels as if we have kept our soul intact.”

Presenters in 2024 include Margaret Atwood (recipient of the SVWC Writer in the World Prize), Judy Blume, Justice Stephen Breyer, Jonathan Eig, Niall Ferguson, Kristin Hannah, Padma Lakshmi, Anne Lamott, Erik Larson, Dennis Lehane, Ayana Mathis, Tiya Miles, David Miliband, Paul Muldoon, Maggie O’Farrell, Tommy Orange, John Vaillant, Clarissa Ward, and many more.
