The first draft of our programming descriptions is now live! You can take a look at it here and see what’s coming to this year’s event! Bear in mind that this is only a first draft; more events are still being added, so this will change over the coming days.
We’re also still taking programming suggestions! So if there’s something you’d like to see or a panel or workshop you’d like to host, hop over to our Programming Suggestions form and let us know!
Intervention is pleased to announce that James Suriano, author of Inbiotic and The Antarcticans, will be a writer guest at this year’s event! We can’t wait to see James and learn more about his work.

It’s just a couple months ’til Intervention, and we have a bunch of guests to announce! Are you ready? It’s a big list!
First, welcome actress Juliet Landau! Buffy fans will remember her as the vampire Drusilla, and fans of Big Finish’s Doctor Who lines will recognize her as a new incarnation of the Time Lady Romana. Her credits also include voice acting work in BioShock and Ben 10 and writing for IDW’s Angel comic book series.
And speaking of writing…
Star Trek writer David Gerrold will also be joining us! David is the writer of the classic episode “The Trouble with Tribbles,” and the creator of the Sleestak race on Land of the Lost.
And there are still more guests!
We’re also happy to be welcoming Chris Flick of Capes-n-Babes, Matt Blum of GeekDad.com, MazeToons creator and performance artist Joe Wos, Adrastus creator Liz Staley, Narbonic‘s Shaenon K. Garrity, Michael Terracciano and Garth Graham of Star Power, Erfworld writer Rob Balder, historian and scholar Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg, and Mary Ratliff of Nine Hour Films!
The band Ego Likeness will also be on hand.
Be sure to look at the guests we have already announced over here, because this is our biggest and best year yet!
Be sure to register now for your chance to meet all these amazing guests, and stay tuned for more announcements in the coming weeks!
By popular request, and since it’s a holiday weekend, we have chosen to keep the early pre-reg price active for one more week!
Full weekend pre-reg for Intervention 2016 will remain at $50 until midnight on July 8. So you have one more week to take advantage of this lower price! After that, it goes up to $60.
