      The Fanfic contest is back this year by popular demand, but with a
      bit of a twist to spice things up. Submissions of new, themed (see

      And that's not all we have for you writers! Returning for a second
      year is the Fiction Anthology. Submissions of all new original and
      fanfic works will be accepted through May 1, 2004, with final
      stories being chosen for publication by the editors by June 1. This
      year's theme is Angels/Devils/Supernatural, in honor of Hallowe'en.

      Please do not submit the same story for both - but feel free to enter
      different works to both if your muses are working overtime!
