Napa Valley Writers’ Conference
July 29, 2018 – August 3, 2018
The Napa Valley Writers’ Conference began in the summer of 1981 when Dave Evans, a professor of English at Napa Valley College, assembled a group of distinguished Berkeley poets and a small group of students in the quiet beauty of the Napa Valley to share their knowledge and perfect their craft.
The program has flourished ever since, growing in size and reputation with each passing year. The 38th conference will feature poets Camille Dungy, Brenda Hillman, Jane Mead, and Carl Phillips, and fiction writers Lan Samantha Chang, Lauren Groff, Mat Johnson, and Howard Norman.
