Sorry about that, couldn't resist
First of all I have to say a grateful thanks to all the
contributors who responded to last month's appeal for more stories . You did a
great job and we're back on track with a good mix of prose and poetry.
I'm very happy, and the sun is shining.
Right, let's get started.
This month Donal Mahoney brings us the story of a young
man coming to his grandfather for a story. A story that will earn him an
A-grade when he writes it up for school. Gramps has a story all right! Read
Fake with Your Left.
Now it's time to welcome back Martin Friel. He has a tale
concerning a man hell-bent on making a scientific breakthrough, well, some kind
of breakthrough anyway. It's called Tam The Bam for reasons which will
Ken Allan Dronsfield has brought us a lot of good poems in
previous editions, and he does so again this time, but he also responds to my
challenge to story-tellers and has sent in this heart-warming piece of fiction:
Three Pennies, Buttons and Lint
Another previous poet turned story-teller this month is JD
DeHart (thanks JD!). This one is a bit spooky so don't read it on a dark night

OK, so theres the hedgehogs, who are the good guys,

Ken Allan Dronsfield again. Ken's answer to the rallying call for new stories
is featured above, but here he brings us a new collection five poems.
It's time to introduce Sofia Kioroglou who is an award
winning Greek poet [BIO]. These are her first
for Winamop: The looking-glass self and Can I tell your dog a
secret? They're good!
Next it's Perry L Powell who steps up to the keyboard and
lays down some new poems for us. Perry is a poet from Georgia in the USA and he
has a very nice touch. Here we have Mission Statement, Now I Know Why
Our last new contributor this month is j. lewis (no
capitals it seems) who makes you think, and entertains too. This is what poetry
is for! Read could it be this, eighty-seven years and newman's
I already have a whole bunch of stuff lined up for June so
remember to check back here for that!
Until then, adieu.
Winamop was conceived on a whim, is run on a
shoestring, ignored by the many, loved by the few and has continued unabashed
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
