Jim Henry Medical Trust

One of our presenters, Jim Henry, is going through a difficult ordeal as he struggles with cystic fibrosis. Jim is a longtime community member and a brother of the conlanging community, and he needs help. If you’d like to read more about his story and perhaps help out, please visit the Jim Henry Medical Trust.

About the LCC

The Language Creation Conference is an international conference discussing issues related to the craft of language creation, or “conlanging”. It includes both fairly technical linguistic discussions as well as more artistic, sociological, or philosophical ones; examples of craft in action; voices from many parts of the conlanging community; and people from all over the world. The conference is open to the public. Preregistration requested. Lunch, snacks, and opportunities to socialize with fellow conlangers will be provided. All proceeds go to the LCS.


We welcome members of the press and will assist you in researching a story about conlangs or conlangers. Press registration is the same as for any other attendee, but we ask that you identify yourself publicly and briefly let the audience know your affiliation(s) and what you are working on.
