Become a Sponsor

StokerCon™ 2022 will take place at The Curtis Hotel in Denver, Colorado and feature the presentation of the Horror Writers Association’s iconic Bram Stoker Awards® in addition to Horror University, the Final Frame Film Competition, the Ann Radcliffe Academic Conference, and Librarians’ Day. It will be the premiere horror event of the year, and your sponsorship will both serve a growing, vital community, and put your brand before hundreds of hungry fans. Our previous StokerCons have garnered national coverage from such mainstream news sources as Huffington Post and important genre publications as Locus Magazine.

The convention will be held May 12th through 15th, with our Bram Stoker Awards® Banquet taking place on the evening of Saturday, May 14th. The awards presentation will be live-streamed on the Internet and recorded for later sharing on HWA’s dedicated YouTube channel.

So, HERE is the chance for your organization to become a sponsor of the HWA and the next StokerCon™.

 

You will gain exposure over a lengthy period to our 1,800+ members worldwide, and to the thousands of writers, readers and horror fans who visit our websites every month. This is a very targeted audience – horror writers, publishers, editors, illustrators, screenwriters, poets, readers and fans.

We thank you in advance for your kind consideration. If you have any questions regarding Sponsorship Packages, please contact the Carina Bissett, via cmariebissett@gmail.com, or the StokerCon Committee at stokercon2022@gmail.com.

Please see the note about the tax deductibility of sponsorship at the end of this document. For information about advertising in the StokerCon™ 2022 Souvenir Anthology, see our Souvenir Book page.
