June 6th

Well I am chuffed! ("pleased, happy," c.1860, British dialect, from obsolete chuff "swollen with fat").
Yes, well I am slightly over weight but let's concentrate on the happy part.

Why? Because this month's edition of Winamop is absolutely bursting with good stories and poetry!

I hope you enjoy it.

Donal Mahoney kicks the edition off again this month with a salutary tale called Mike Fitzgibbons and His Morning Paper. Just don't let those little things get you annoyed..

It's good to have a Martin Green story in this edition; this one is about a couple of brothers and their opinions of eachother's wives. Dangerous ground.. there's some apologising to do!

Next I'm glad to be able to introduce Angelica Fuse to Winamop. She describes herself as " a voice that refuses to be quiet", that's OK in a crowded world but not so good in a library.. Here she brings us a flash fiction piece: Crunch Time.

I have to make another introduction now, welcome to Louis Sisto - who was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and currently lives in Macomb in the same state. This flash piece is called Across The Road. We're all going there eventually..

Up next is KJ Hannah Greenberg with another story about Albuquerque Quisling Jones, a woman you'd probably rather not meet on the Egged bus. Egged bus? Yes, I wondered that too; turns out they are the number one bus company in Israel.

Kristy Kerruish informs me that Jimmy's Brilliant Idea is free to return to Winamop so you can read that again - but more importantly - she has a new story about taxidermist Derick Bannantyne who's ambition was to stuff a hippo.. well, why not? It's called Waiting For Hippo.

Last in the fiction section is Katie Lewington who last appeared on Winamop in 2015 [BIO]. It's a series of scenes from the life of a teenage boy.. I was one of those once. Yes, amazing isn't it? She didn't give a title so I'm calling it simply Scenes.

a line, (a short blue one)


Poetry now, and time to meet Martin H Levinson, with not just a taster but a full set of five poems for you to enjoy. Check out I am an Iceberg, Signal Reactions, Thoughts I Had When You Told Me to Eat Shit, Lost in Thought and Singular Dudes.

Our next new voice is HR Creel who claims that he "is getting too old not to write".  Well, on the evidence of this collection of five poems it's a good thing that he feels that way.

Now it's good to be able to welcome Sofia Kioroglou back to Winamop. Here she brings us one poem Flying by the seat of my pants. That's life I guess..

To round up the poetry section we have yet another new contributor - Nate Maye. He brings us four new poems: Lights On, This November, Famine and Gestures.

Well done all.

We are back on track now, having cleared the backlog of material. So let's be having your submissions for the next edition.

Until then.

Pip pip!

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!
