July 20th

Here we are again, happy as can be.. yes, I'm delighted to be introducing the late-running July edition of Winamop to you, our faithful readers.

It's full of wholesome ingredients designed to enrich your life - so let's get started.

We kick off with a story from Martin Green about a fortune teller. They are spooky sort of people aren't they? How do they know so much about you? It can't be true can it?

Now to Donal Mahoney, and his story concerns an old man in a hospital bed and a visit from a well-meaning woman priest. It's called Saving Tim Murnane.

I always learn a new word from KJ Hannah Greenberg's contributions - this time it's "mirpesset" (it means a balcony). The story is a little slice of family life, it's called Harmatttan.

The last item this month is another collection of ekphrastic poetry from Neil Ellman. This time he has been concentrating on the colourful work of Wassily Kandinski.

A small but perfectly formed edition of the 'mop I think.

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!
