The SVWC Experience
During the course of the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference, we will be filming, photographing, and recording the overall experience, including all sessions and any Q&A that is included. (This is primarily for our marketing and distribution of content.) Please be aware that by attending the Conference you consent to allow the Conference to use your likeness and voice in recordings, films, and tapes in our marketing materials and all media, now and in the future, waive any rights with respect to such use, and release the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference from any liability pertaining to such use. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
If you purchase a pass and are no longer able to use it, you may notify us by May 15 for a refund minus a $35 per pass handling fee. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds after that time.
