LVW hosts four programs a year, rotating venues to serve members across the state. This movement has taken on an unofficial pattern with the Winter Program being held in the Burlington area, the Spring Program near Rutland, the Summer Program alternating between the north and south end of the state, and the Fall Program occurring mid-state. The Winter Program also serves as the official annual business meeting.
LVW programs always offer those in attendance the opportunity to hear speakers on a variety of topics that deal with the business of writing or the process and craft of writing itself. Writers also use these events to network with others and/or promote their published work. Morning refreshments and lunch are usually included in the registration price.
