NEW POLICY CONCERNING WINNING AND HOSTING THE HOSTED CHALLENGES (Word Painting, Simplicity SFITB, Anything Goes, and All Stars). If you enter a hosted challenge, you MUST do so with the full intent and understanding that hosting is EXPECTED of you if you win. Family emergencies and such do come up and we do understand that. But a response is appreciated and in the future to be named as the winner in any of the above mentioned challenges, a response will be REQUIRED. After the host has made his/her choice and has sent them to the moderator, the winner will be contacted. The winner will have 24 hours to respond. If no response is received, the runner-up will be contacted. If the runner-up responds and hosts, he/she will be awarded the win. Hosting is NOT MANDATORY but to earn the win IT WILL BE REQUIRED. This is only fair to both the host and the other entrants in the given challenge. If the winner has a legitimate reason for not hosting (as mentioned above), the winner will still be credited with a win and the named winner and runner-up will share the win if the runner-up hosts. Also if entering a hosted challenge please make note of my email address. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact me (moderator) this way and/or through Starlite messages. If the host does not choose a winner, a winner will be chosen for them by the moderator OR the challenge will close with no winner at all. Remember this pertains to the HOSTED CHALLENGES ONLY!
Now on to the challenge!!!!
Welcome to our Anything Goes Challenge! This challenge will have no phrase, theme, or genre restrictions to be followed! Any writing form is accepted... poem, short story, songs... whatever. You may write about anything be it happy, sad, humorous, inspirational etc... BUT it must consist of your original work. (Excerpts from other works or quotes are allowed to be included IN your entry but credit MUST be given AND the majority of the entry MUST be original.) As you can see the possibilities are endless. Let's see what you can come up with. It could be a new submission or an older one that has not previously posted in a challenge!
Only one entry per poet (not pen name... which means if you are part of a collaboration this will count as your entry) will be accepted in this challenge.
This challenge ends at the time and date shown above or upon reaching 15 entries. (This challenge tends to fill quickly so check often to see if challenge has closed)
Anything Goes is a host voted challenge so all submissions entered MUST be open for the host and moderator to view! This will allow the host to make a fair choice of winner. 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 or found to be not compliant with policies, it will not be considered for a win and will be removed without notice.
No JFTLOI entries allowed in this challenge. If you enter, please do so with the intent to host if you should be named the winner. The ONLY two exceptions to the JFTLOI rule will be the prior host (the host who awarded the challenge to the present host as the winner or runner-up)...and also the host of the current challenge. BOTH may submit but NEITHER can be considered for a win.
