Bread Loaf Writers’ Conferences 2022

Updated on 11/18/21

As we plan to welcome participants and faculty back to the Bread Loaf campus, the health and safety of our entire community continues to be our highest priority. Scientific research tells us that vaccination of the vast majority of our community will provide the best possible protection against COVID-19.

All participants, employees, faculty, and guests who will be on campus must be fully vaccinated or have an approved religious or medical exemption on file. Fully vaccinated means that two weeks have passed since a person received the final dose of their vaccine.

As always, Middlebury College will continue to be guided by science and the latest conditions. Middlebury will continue to monitor state and federal COVID-19-related guidance, local, and regional health conditions, including local health system capacity, cases in the broader community, and variants of concern.

Over the upcoming months, conference staff will continue to work with Middlebury’s COVID Operations team to consider additional protocols as needed. These may include prearrival testing, requirements for face coverings indoors, and moving events outdoors when possible.
