22nd July.

Back in June and I feared that we wouldn't be able to continue putting out monthly editions, but thanks to all the contributors below, we've managed to assemble a terrific collection of stories and poetry for you.

It's great to have Donal back with us, as well as Martin, Channie, Andrew, John, Vince and Fabrice and also to welcome new contributors - Bradford and Gale - to the site.

Before we get to the content there is just one parish notice: KJ Hannah Greenberg tells me that she has a new poetry book, Mothers Ought to Utter Only Niceties, available on, but if readers buy it through, they can use the discount code, KRJ5K8P5 to get 30% off!

OK. Lots to enjoy so let's get started..

it says "stories"

Donal Mahoney returns! Great to have one of our most prolific contributors back; this time it's with the story of Rudy who is in a wheel-chair. Most people don't have a problem with that.. Read A Problem with Rudy.

Andrew Lee-Hart is a great constructor of worlds and this one lies before and after the second world war when communism was both fashionable and feared. It is called Entertaining Angels. I recommend it.

Martin Green is also one of our most prolific contributors and he's back too! He tells the tale of a planet far away, but strangely familiar, where feminism has been cranked up to 11. What would that mean for Love on the Planet Euphemista?

Bradford Middleton [BIO] has written his first story for us, it's called Love Around the Corner and it's about Jack who has become disillusioned with relationships and has rather let his life go - but maybe there's a slim chance of him finding love?

KJ Hannah Greenberg makes the case for the older and more experienced writer. She's pushing at an open door here! The piece is called Saggy Skin’s Beauty Queen Prose.

Well, I hope you found something you liked in this month's edition. If all goes well we'll be back again some time in August.

If you'd like to contribute, just contact me via the email button at the bottom of the page.

Until we meet again.

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!
