Note: There are ways to slip into the queue even with the closing, particularly if you have a story in progress. However, please know that any submissions dated 12-23-06 through 01-01-07 will be deleted without moderation. Please hold on to your submissions and have fun swamping us in January.
Edit: The winter challenges category (Winter Tales) will remain open so that participants can continue to submit their entries. (If you're a participant and the queue won't let you submit, try deleting your cookies and temporary internet files, and then refresh the page.) Thank you!
