HOWL. Pandemic style.

At 50% of the cost of an in-person ticket ($225+rsvp fees) you can still be a part of the HOWL community. Your CYBER HOWL registration will provide you with an exclusive Zoom invitation that will give you access to: 5 speaker presentations, the interactive Q-and-A panel, and 2 live musical performances. It's meant to be interactive. Howlers will be encouraged to submit comments and questions throughout the experience. HOWL was always meant to be a social experience, we are translating that goal online with CYBER HOWL!

What do I need in order to participate in CYBER HOWL?

In order to participate you need a free Zoom account and a competent internet connection. The Zoom app can be downloaded for free at

What do I get with my registration?

The registration fee of $225+rsvp fees gives you access to: 5 presentations, 1 Q-and-A panel, and 2 live musical performances. After you've registered we will send you a confirmation email with instructions about how to join the convention. It's as easy as clicking on a link.

What if I get disconnected during CYBER HOWL?

We will be recording all of the presentations and making them available for later viewing. If you get disconnected the presentations will continue seamlessly, you can always re-connect when your internet service resumes.

What if HOWL's internet gets disconnected?

HOWL will have 15GB of emergency cellular data that we will use in the event that our internet is down. If a remote speaker (Melissa Groo, for instance) is unable to present due to internet trouble, then their presentation will be rescheduled. The convention is 3 days with lots of breaks, so there is lots of opportunity to juggle the schedule if internet becomes a problem.
