In this category, please nominate the poet who affected you the most in 2017. Whose poems did you seek out and enjoy? Who made laugh/cry/etc.? Whose body of work most had an effect on you or your writing (if you're an author) this year?
Poet must be an active Literotica member (meaning their account is still currently on Literotica – it has not been removed or cancelled) who submitted stories during the year 2017 (and those submissions must still be on the site).
One nomination per member, please. If multiple nominations are made by a member, only the first listed will count.
Please note that posts containing trolling, name-calling, and/or other forms of negativity will be removed. If you don't enjoy contests, that's fine - you are free to not participate. Please do not ruin everyone else's fun.
Thank you to all participants - readers and authors alike!
