Community Engagement

How We Give Back

Your contribution to the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference goes beyond the Conference itself.


At SVWC, we are proud to call the Sun Valley area home. Your donation to the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference helps fund our school and community programs, educating, inspiring, and fueling a love of literature and learning among students, teachers, and the entire Wood River Valley. We collaborate year-round with the area’s schools, libraries, and other nonprofit organizations. Please read more about our community initiatives and outreach efforts below. Thanks to the support of our generous donors, we are able to provide free access to much of the SVWC content.

Blaine County Community Outreach – NEW Scholars Program

A special opportunity for educators and students
in the Wood River Valley . . .
We have expanded and enhanced our Community Scholars Program in 2024, thanks to the generous support of our donors.

The goal of our Outreach Program is to share the experience, inspiration, and learning offered at the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference with our broader local community, especially student and teachers, inspiring them to share it with others and weave that knowledge and those interactions into their daily lives.

Four Blaine County educators/high school students will be chosen through a simple online application process to attend SVWC this July 20-22 as full passholders.
The application window is now open through May 31 and recipients will be notified by June 5!
