      >
      > Of course, you can also put a copy of your fanfic on your website,

      > Certainly. "Discussion of fan artwork, and fan literature" is

      >
      > The rec.arts.anime.creative newsgroup sets the "Followup-To" header in

      >
      > If it is a finished work, then you can post it to

      > If it isn't a finished work, then you can post it to

      >
      > Just be warned that you're going to be asking everyone in the world

      > Subject: Are there any anime clubs in my city?
