The UK elections are over, there is no much vaunted "hung parliament" so the news organisations are bereft.. there's nothing to pontificate about!

This doesn't affect Winamop in the slightest of course, we are always willing to make our opinions known, even if we don't have any.

In any case our fine team of writers have been studiously ignoring such tedium as elections and have crafted the following stories and poems which I hope you will enjoy. So let's get started.

First up this time is Donal Mahoney with the story of a doctor. He's a good doctor who cares for his staff and does his work well. What's not to like? It's called Dr. Chapman’s Insight.

And now to something completely different (where have I heard that before?): a series of photographs from Kyle Hemmings who did some mini stories/poems for us in 2011. These pictures are taken at night in the warm amber glow of the street lights.

That's all we have for you this time. I hope you enjoyed it and will be back with us next month.

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!
