golden tree at NVC Upper Valley Campus

The Napa Valley Writers’ Conference is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, operated under the aegis of the Napa Valley College District Auxiliary Services Foundation. The conference is a project of Napa Valley College.

Currently, 35% of the conference’s operating budget comes from donations from individuals and institutions. Their contributions make allow us to bring students and some of the best contemporary writers to the Napa Valley community.

In addition, these contributions help us host public readings and lectures at Napa Valley College and local wineries, where members of the entire Napa community gain the opportunity to hear and meet some of the best contemporary writers in America.
