For over 45 years, the UND Writers Conference, which is completely free and open to the public, has brought some of the most influential authors of the 20th and 21st century to the Northern Red River Valley to further our mission of creating the opportunity for a discussion of the literary arts as they relate to our everyday lives.

Although the UND Writers Conference does have some guaranteed funding thanks to a number of generous donors who helped found various endowments, these funds are not enough to pay for our annual Conference. Approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of the Conference's annual budget is raised through yearly grant writing and additional donations.

If you would like to help the UND Writers Conference continue, please consider making a donation.
