The Wordstock Website wrote:This international contest is a “double blind” competition. 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 that will be available at the festival, at Portland-area bookstores, and online through the Wordstock website. Every writer who enters the competition will receive a copy of the anthology.

The winner of the competition, chosen from this field of 10 finalists, receives a first prize of $1,000 and publication in the October 2011 issue of Portland Monthly magazine. The final judge for this year’s competition will be novelist and story writer Aimee Bender.

Some interesting things to note:

    They accept comics.
    There is an entry fee ($20 USD).
    Electronic submissions only.
Screwing with gender since 1995.
