With five Pulitzer Prize winners, two National Book Award finalists, six “New York Times” bestsellers, and a former U.S. Poet Laureate, the 2023 Sun Valley Writers’ Conference (SVWC) will feature “the strongest literary list we’ve ever had,” according to SVWC Literary Director John Burnham Schwartz.
Now celebrating its 29th year, SVWC 2023 will be held Saturday, July 22 through Monday, July 24 at the stunning Sun Valley Resort and Pavilion. For three days, some of the country’s—and the world’s—best writers and thinkers, including fiction and nonfiction writers, journalists, policymakers, and poets will descend upon the small town of Sun Valley, Idaho. This year, the all-star line-up will include Abraham Verghese, Tracy K. Smith, Ezra Klein, Anne Applebaum, Dave Barry, Ed Yong, Javier Zamora, Jennifer Homans, Curtis Sittenfeld, and many more!
Passes on sale February 16.
This year, we will be offering a Full Conference Pass ($1,100) and a half-price Next Generation Pass for those 35 and under ($550).
