The Napa Valley Writers' Conference is heading into its 38th year as one of the nation's most prestigious summer writing programs. Since its beginning as an informal summer gathering of writers, the conference has remained a place to convene for fellowship, serious work with a focus on craft, and a week spent beside the hills and vineyards that have made the Napa Valley famous.

At a time when more attention is being paid to commercialism and marketing in the field of literature, the NVWC has maintained its emphases on process and craft, featuring a faculty as renowned for the quality of their teaching as their work. It has also remained small and personal, fostering an unusual rapport between faculty writers and conference participants, who find the Napa Valley experience both nurturing and challenging. This conference is suited to writers who have already some training, but we also encourage beginners to apply.
