Competition Issue. The content of this issue is the result of the second annual writing competition sponsored by The Idol. We were pleased with the large number of submissions for the contest this year. Over twenty pieces of fiction and nearly 65 poems were considered. In the interests of impartiality, each item was submitted under a pseudonym. Three judges reviewed every piece, and rated them individually. Those with the highest cumulative scores were awarded prized of $100 or $50. The winning fiction entry was published in our last issue, so in this issue we have printed another excellent piece by Mark Wallace. Together with the winning entries, we have included works submitted to the competition which were judged of outstanding quality. We wish to thank everyone who submitted items to the competition, and encourage them to do so again next year.
