      Wordstock is happy to announce a call for entries for the 2nd Wordstock Short Fiction Competition. The winner will be announced at this year's festival, November 8-9 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.

      This national contest is a "double blind" competition, where neither the writers nor judges know the identity of other. The judges, a collection of writers, academics, publishers, bookstore owners, and literary critics, will choose 10 finalists. All 10 finalists' stories will be published in The Wordstock Ten, an anthology available for purchase at the festival, Portland-area bookstores, and online at wordstockfestival.com. All entrants will receive a complimentary copy.

      The winner of the competition will receive $1,000 and publication in the December 2008 issue of Portland Monthly magazine. The final judge for this year's competition will be Portland novelist Ursula K. Le Guin.

      During last year's competition, we received submissions from over 20 states as well as Puerto Rico, Brazil, and Australia. Joshua Michael Riedel of San Francisco won the 2007 competition for his story, "The Creek."

      Entries must be between 1,500 and 4,000 words, and will be accepted by mail at 8536 SW St Helens Dr., Suite D, Wilsonville, OR 97070. Entries must be postmarked by August 1, 2008. The entrance fee is $25 per submission.
