Welcome to the NO FRILLS Challenge! PLEASE NOTE ALL ENTRIES MUST BE YOUR ORIGINAL WORK! (Excerpts from other works included IN your poem are allowed as are quotes but credit MUST be given to the writer of such and the actual entry must consist of your own work.) This challenge will have no phrase or theme to be followed! You may write about anything be it happy, sad, humorous, inspirational etc. All forms of poetry or prose are allowed. Older poems are allowed but CANNOT have appeared in another challenge. As you can see the possibilities are endless. Let's see what you can come up with. It could be a new poem or an older poem NOT previously posted in a challenge!
BUT it does come with a twist! |

YOU MUST USE AN ENTIRELY SOLID WHITE PAGE WITH BLACK FONT OR AN ENTIRELY SOLID BLACK PAGE WITH WHITE FONT. THIS MEANS THE WHOLE PAGE... NOT JUST BEHIND THE TEXT. NO OTHER COLOR COMBINATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
As you might notice it is similar to the Simplicity SFITB challenge except for two important factors.. IT IS SITE-WIDE VOTED AND THERE IS NO PHRASE REQUIRED. In other words... LET'S KEEP IT SIMPLE... WITH NO FRILLS!
ONLY ONE ENTRY PER POET! THIS DOES NOT MEAN PEN NAME... IT MEANS POET! IF YOU SUMBIT A COLLABORATION, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER ANOTHER POEM IN THAT CURRENT CHALLENE, NO MATTER WHO POSTED THE COLLABORATION. NOR CAN YOU ENTER ANOTHER POEM USING ANOTHER PEN NAME.
This challenge ends at the time and date shown above or upon reaching 15 entries.
This is a site wide voted challenge so all poems entered MUST be open for all to view! This will allow all to vote fairly. Also your poem must comply with Starlite's posting policies. These can be found in Challenge Policy or on the poem submission page. Please read them. If your poem is hidden, found to be not compliant with policies, OR not compliant with challenge rules,YOUR ENTRY WILL BE REMOVED WITHOUT NOTICE.
And a note from your challenge moderator... as moderator of this challenge I would like to thank all of you who participate.
Time to dip your ink into the well of simplicity and let your creativity shine!
