Participants discuss writing at a Napa Valley Writers' Conference event

The Napa Valley Writers’ Conference is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, operated under the aegis of the Napa Valley College Foundation. The conference is hosted and sponsored by Napa Valley College.

Currently, 20% of the conference’s operating budget comes from donations from individuals and institutions. Their contributions make possible grants to bring students, and stipends to bring some of the best contemporary writers to the Napa Valley community.

In addition to bringing together developing writers and gifted faculty in our workshops, we are proud to 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.

If you are interested in making a donation, please contact Anne Evans, program director, or send checks payable to Napa Valley College Foundation.  Please include Napa Valley Writers’ Conference on the memo line.

Separate checks are necessary for donations.  Please do not include a donation in the same check as a  conference fee payment.
