Erotic Contest Judged - Charlotte Jade Puddifoot's Blog

About Charlotte Jade Puddifoot

I've been writing since forever, and have had poems published in a variety of magazines and anthologies. My passion is contemporary free verse, and I read a lot, because I do believe that the more you read, the more it enhances your own work. Aside from writing and literature, my other main interests are music and singing, theatre, and ballet. I sing all genres from classical through to jazz. I also have an interest in vintage fashion.

Judging this contest was a pleasure (in more ways than one!) but it was also the most difficult contest I've judged so far. I was fairly tough with my judging, finally arriving at just 14 winners - all very different from each other, and all capturing a different aspect of sensuality and eroticism. Hopefully there is something for everyone - from Carrie's dark, heart wrenching stunner, to Frank's joyous, raw eroticism. Thanks to everyone who participated and made this contest such a pleasure to judge :)

Thanks so much Charlotte......and I so appreciated your advice, that I reconsidered those lines I had altered, and went back to the original. Thanks so much ......I value your opinion !!
