I purchased a ticket to the in-person event for 2021, which was cancelled due to COVID. Do I need to purchase a new ticket?

If you did not request a full refund for the 2021 event, your registration automatically rolled over to 2022. You will receive a partial refund for the difference in ticket prices. All rolled-over registration are for the in-person event ONLY. If you wish to add a virtual component, that will need to be purchased separately. Write admin@horror.org to do so.

If you did request a full refund, your registration was cancelled and you will need to re-register.

If you're unsure as to your status, please write admin@horror.org.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Due to the discussion of mature subject matter during some programming, we ask that anyone under the age of 18 be accompanied by an adult. For any further questions or concerns with this, please contact admin@horror.org. 

 What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

What's the refund policy?

StokerCon™ registrations may be canceled more than sixty days ahead of the convention start date for a full refund of your purchase price. Within sixty days, and up to and including through the convention, no refunds will be issued but you may either sell or transfer your registration. If you encounter an extenuating circumstance (death in the family, hospitalization, etc.), you may contact the StokerCon™ Chair(s) and petition for a refund. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Proof of the extenuating circumstance may be required. The Horror Writers Association (HWA) will assist in the sale or transfer of registrations only to the extent that it will recognize said sale or transfer as it pertains to name badges, any associated swag, access to the convention event spaces, banquet attendance (if included), or any other special access granted by the registration sold or transferred. The HWA will not function as an intermediary in any exchange of monies on the sale of a registration and will not be responsible for any loss incurred therein. You may post publicly on the HWA and StokerCon™ Facebook pages if you wish to offer your registration for sale or transfer.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. A printed ticket is not needed. Simply show your ID at registration to pick up your badge. We do suggest having a digital copy of your receipt at hand on a mobile device in the unlikely event there was an issue with your badge.

Organizer Horror Writers Association

Organizer of StokerCon 2022

THE HORROR WRITERS ASSOCIATION (HWA) is a nonprofit organization of writers and publishing professionals around the world, dedicated to promoting dark literature and the interests of those who write it. HWA was formed in the late 1980’s with the help of many of the field’s greats, including Dean Koontz, Robert McCammon, and Joe Lansdale. Today——with over 1800 members in countries such as Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Denmark, Germany, Honduras, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Russia, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad, United Kingdom and the United States——it is the oldest and most respected professional organization for the much-loved writers who have brought you the most enjoyable sleepless nights of your life.

One of HWA’s missions is to encourage public interest in and foster an appreciation of good Horror and Dark Fantasy literature. To that end, we offer the public areas of this web site, we sponsor or take part in occasional public readings and lectures, we publish a blog and produce other materials for booksellers and librarians, we facilitate readings and signings by horror writers, and we maintain an official presence at the major fan-based horror and fantasy conventions.

HWA is also dedicated to recognizing and promoting diversity in the horror genre, and practices a strict anti-harassment policy at all of its events.

As part of our core mission, we sponsor the annual Bram Stoker Awards® for superior achievement in horror literature. Named in honor of the author of the seminal horror novel Dracula, the Bram Stoker Awards® are presented for superior writing in eleven categories including traditional fiction of various lengths, poetry, screenwriting, graphic novels, young adult, and non-fiction. In addition, HWA presents an annual Lifetime Achievement Award to a living person who has made significant contributions to the writing of Horror and Dark Fantasy over the course of a lifetime.
