6th May

Are you feeling full of the joys of spring? If not, why not? The blossom is on the trees and the sun occasionally shines, so it seems that 2017 has finally got into its stride.

If you've mown the lawn or watered the window box or just stumbled in after a nice healthy walk - or perhaps just crawled out of bed after a heavy night in a seedy bar - then just relax and unscrew the lid from our jar of delights. You've earned it!

Here in Britain we've got a general election going on, Winamop brings you up to date with all the candidates who want to lead us through the next few, difficult years in our News section.

There's also a new Page 94, but that's not important right now. Let's get on with the good stuff.

We have some top fiction in the Stories department and a small but perfectly formed Poetry section which will inspire you.

Off we go:

it says "stories"

Donal Mahoney has written many stories for Winamop. By my reckoning this is number 56.. quite some achievement! This one is about Two Old Poets, One in a Rush, and that's what it's called.
read this!

 

Eric Suhem has brought us the story of a wife who has been married to a birdwatching husband for 30 years and her daughter who plans to marry an ornithologist. A marriage made in heaven?

Andrew Lee-Hart joins us again with the tale of Samson; a boy growing up in a turbulent Warsaw before the second World-War. His life was influenced by an inspirational Rabbi, an influence which lasted to the end.

Martin Green has been feeling his age, what about a spot of light gardening to lift the spirits? Those roses need feeding..

KJ Hannah Greenberg's story this month is one of her "Bunnies" tales (sorry, can't resist a pun). Here Plumper makes a big sacrifice for her offspring in Rabbit's Foot.

it says "poems"

Gerard Sarnat kicks off a small but excellent poetry section this time. Gerard is a much published poet and a medical man BIO. This collection of pieces is most entertaining and should make you think.. and there will be more soon!

John Grey [BIO] impressed me with his last collection of poems and now he's back with more, equally fine, poetry. This time we have Jamaican Sunday, Why I'm Stuck Here, Ms Unique, Not Even Thinking of Love, Beachcombing and On The Subject of Spring. Superb.
read this!

 

That's all we have for you this month, hopefully we'll return in about 30 days with some more. If you feel like contributing don't forget to get in touch, the email button is at the bottom of the page.

À bientôt, as my Scottish grandmother hardly ever said.

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!
