"The UND Writers Conference was founded in 1970 and has been held every year since, even when the state of North Dakota has been threatened by blizzard, flood, and/or fire. Our goal is to create an opportunity for a rigorous exploration of the literary arts, as well as to provide a forum for a local and regional conversation about how the arts are tied to our everyday lives. In order to further this mission, all conference events are, and have always been, free and open to the public. Since its beginning, the UND Writers Conference has hosted approximately 330 authors, including four Nobel laureates, thirty-three Pulitzer Prize winners, and multiple MacArthur Geniuses, as well as recipients of the Man Booker Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Oscar, and myriad other honors. Counted among these authors are some of the most influential writers of the 20th and 21st centuries, such as Allen Ginsberg, Louise Erdrich, Norman Mailer, Tom Wolfe, Alice Walker, Tony Kushner, Oliver Sacks, William S. Burroughs, Sir Salman Rushdie, Roxane Gay, and Cheryl Strayed, just to name a few."
