October 9th

I have returned from the rugged beauty of the Outer Hebrides especially to bring you the October edition of Winamop.
Well, truth be told, my holiday is over and I've got nothing else to do so - Here it is!

Before we get to the content I'd better just tell you about a new book of poetry by previous contributor John Kaniecki. It's available here, and it's called Murmurings of a Madman.

Right, notices over, let's get down to business.

Firstly, we'll get back to the action in Martin Friel's story When The Traffic Lights Stopped and we have reached chapter 7. Last time Marjory was in trouble, this time things go from bad to worse.

Now sit back as Donal Mahoney tells the tale of an old priest who is asked for some advice by a younger man. It's called Young Priest, Old Priest.

Next up I'm delighted to welcome Dan Morey to Winamop. He brings us an election manifesto from Bob Benton who reckons he's the guy to run Rexdale county. I'm not so sure...

KJ Hannah Greenberg has written a short flash fiction piece for you this time. It's called They Planted A Tree.

I obviously have too much time on my hands, so I have written a Page 94 on cutlery. We haven't had a Page 94 for ages. You must have something you can rant and rave about surely? Send one in!

And so to another new contributor, this time with an excellent poem. Matt Harris brings us Chang Sanfeng comes down from Wudang Mountain. He's a legendary Chinese Taoist priest you know (Chang, not Matt).

We wrap it up with some poetry from JD DeHart. This time he brings us a few comments on life today: The Fine Print, The Goatee Invasion and The American Species.

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!
