Since 2018, YANCON has gathered undergraduate writers on BYU campus to discuss craft, learn techniques, and swap writing secrets. All free of charge for attendees.

Funded by the English department and spearheaded by graduate students, the program is designed to help all writers from any major develop the skills needed to shift novel dreams into real practice.

Whether you just completed your tenth novel or are starting your very first, YANCON is the place to be this summer to elevate your craft, sharpen your characters, and meet fellow writers.


Applications for YANCON 2024 are open now.
