If a person engages in harassing behavior, Writing Com Con Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from Writing Com Con with no refund. Our policy applies to EVERYONE at the convention. Exhibitors, Fans (Attendees), Speakers, Guests, Press, Staff, Volunteers, and Security are all subject to our anti-harassment policy.

Anyone can report harassment. If someone’s behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact Writing Com Con Staff or Security Team. You may also come to Writing Com Con’s Show Office or the Security Office. If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of Writing Com Con.

Remember: Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of another Writing Com Con Fan, always ask first and respect that person’s right to say no. When at Writing Com Con, be respectful, be nice, be cool, and be kind to each other.
