StokerCon Anti-Harassment Policy


The Horror Writers Association and StokerCon are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of convention attendees in any form. Attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the convention without a refund at the discretion of the chairs.

Reporting Harassment

As evidenced by our anti-harassment policy, we at StokerCon take any type of harassment at conventions seriously. To that end, we would like to announce the process for reporting harassment.

All of the StokerCon staff and volunteers will be identifiable by their specially-marked badges. Each volunteer will be briefed before the con begins on StokerCon’s anti-harassment policy and on how to handle reporting. If anyone sees or experiences an instance of harassment, they can bring their complaint to a volunteer or event staff.

Additionally, we have created an email address specifically for this issue. That address is complaint@stokercon.com. Anyone who sees or experiences harassment can, if they aren’t comfortable speaking to someone in person, file their complaint through that email address.

All complaints will be immediately brought to the Convention Chairs. They will then follow-up with any needed communication or investigation and take the appropriate action.

As said, we take this topic very seriously and want to ensure that everyone who attends StokerCon has a great time free from any type of harassment.
