Given the number of items that you will end up creating, or that you will be creating a book, unfortunately, members with a free account are not eligible for participation.

*ExclaimR* All genres and ratings are accepted up to and including XGC - but please no fetish stuff, no prejudice towards sexual preferences or racism, etc.

*Exclaimp* This is an activity, a challenge, but not a contest. No one's poems will be judged.

Once you have written your poem, please post a link to your poem in the forum below. Since this is an activity, you can catch up on previous weeks that you have missed, just make sure that you state in your forum post what week it is for.

"What's in it for me?"

Besides the fun and challenge of it, it's up to you! The more you add to your layaway fund, the better your reward at the end of it.

If you want to get a 50K banner on your book/folder, then you need to contribute 50K GPs to your layaway fund throughout the running of this activity.

If you want to get a 125K star on your book/folder, then you need to contribute 125K GPs to your layaway fund throughout the running of this activity.

If you want to get a 500K trophy on your book/folder, then you need to contribute 500K GPs to your layaway fund throughout the running of this activity.

Your reward will always add up to however much you contribute to your layaway fund. If the amount you contribute does not exactly match an Awardicon, then you will receive an Awardicon of the closest possible value, plus any remaining GPs will be used to award any other prizes I deem appropriate (such as Merit Badges, a second Awardicon), or I may purchase a package from a member shop for you.

If you choose not to put an awardicon/trophy on layaway, that is entirely up to you. I will guarantee that you will receive a 10K ribbon on your book/folder for your participation, assuming you complete all 52 prompts.

You may add funds to your layaway fund throughout the duration of the challenge.

Periodically throughout the year, there will be Mini-Challenges with prizes up for grabs.
Mini-Challenges are always OPTIONAL!

If you complete all 52 prompts by the activity deadline, I will send you PPC's exclusive MB.
