April 2019

It's "swings and roundabouts" round here. Some months I get a surfeit of poetry and hardly any stories, and others - like this one - I have lots of stories and only a few poems..

Not that I'm complaining, I'm pleased to have such a diverse group of writers and artists contributing. Keep it up!

So, story fans, it's your lucky edition, but poetry afficionados have something to enjoy too.

Let's get started:

it says "stories"

George Gad Economou. There are bars you feel happy to walk into and there are those which it's probably best to avoid. This tale concerns a bar in the latter category. It's Just Another Night of Insanity; enter if you dare..

Paul Murgatroyd is new to Winamop and his story is all about a haunted house. Well, it's a haunted hotel really, should attract some kindred spirits I suppose? It's called Stan.

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 800 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!
