Welcome back.

It's nearly Easter already and, just as you've come to egg-spect, we have a hot cross-section of entertainment. It's simnely the best!

(readership groans)

Sorry about that but I had to set an egg-zample...

(Boo! shouts reader)

OK OK, I'll stop and get on with the new edtion of Winamop.

(at last)

First out of the traps on our egg-hunt it's Donal Mahoney. This story concerns an editor, he's not like me - this fellow has a much greater understanding of the workings of grammar, and he has no time for those who can't spell ukulele.

It's good to be able to welcome Martin Green back to Winamop for the first time this year. Martin has been recuperating for a while and I guess he has been watching a lot of depressing TV news! The resultant story is called The End?

Is it time for a flash? Well, just a quick one! A couple of contributors have sent in short pieces recently so here is a modest collection by Harry Downey and KJ Hannah Greenberg. I hope to add more one day..

Whilst on the subject of KJ Hannah Greenberg, let's move into the poetry section; here we find a new poem from her called Cold Enough to See. Wrap up warm.

Paul Tristram is back with another half-dozen of his excellent poems. If there's a theme to this collection it's probably one of endings. I think that my favourite is She’s At The Wheel Again .

It's great to hear from Michael Lee Johnson again. I really do mean "hear", because as before, he has provided us with audio versions of his poetry so that you can hear him reading them. I particularly like If You Find No Poem.

Finally, we come new contributor Tempest Brew. I know nothing about this poet and am unable to contact them because the email address is dead. If you see this Tempest Brew then please contact me again!

Well, that's got us one quarter of the way through 2015, let's hope we make it to the end.

I'm optimistic that it'll be a fun trip!




Something you missed? Catch up on previous editions by clicking this word. They are all there, right back to 2003.




Winamop was conceived on a whim, is run on a shoestring, ignored by the many, loved by the few and has continued unabashed since 2003.

All human life is here, experienced people, skilled writers and rank amateurs, sometimes they hit the mark, sometimes they belly-flop (sometimes they mix their metaphors). You pick up the pieces and make of them what you will. Find out about us here and about the site here.The contributor's guidelines are here and the e-mail button is below.

We hope to continue to maintain a showcase for new writing which will grow as you, dear readers, augment the efforts of the in-house team. We have over 400 unique pages so far but, quite frankly, we need more...

Have a good look around and if you feel that you'd like to contribute in any genre, then don't be shy, send it in! The copyright remains yours, and you could win a mop (unlikely, as I've run out).

Jump straight to a category using the buttons at the top of the page, they work from any page. Remember, it's all free and is made from 100% natural ingredients!

By the way, we use a cookie to record your page ratings, if you don't rate a page you won't get one!
