8th April

Happy Easter everyone.

I have just returned from a land far, far, away - only to discover that it's time to finish Winamop's April edition (no fooling!).

Before we start I have some exciting news from KJ Hannah Greenberg: Her new book, Can I Be Rare, Too? is now available via Amazon. It includes some stories you may recognise!

And whilst on the subject of Winamop contributors publishing new books: Gary Beck's new volume of poetry Tremors is now available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle edition.

Parish notices over?


Start the music..

it says "stories"

Donal Mahoney's story this time is about the way an upbringing which is less than ideal usually has consequences further down the line. It's called An Affective Disorder, the Doctor said.

Andrew Lee-Hart is back [BIO] with a new story concerning an aspiring architect, a drunken Duke and his pet project. His stories are full of colour and detail, a very good read. This one is called Folly.

Martin Green reckons that the Martian's are coming. Well, the way politics are going it probably couldn't get worse.. Or could it? Find out in The Martian Invasion.

Alex Wyte is an occasional contributor to Winamop and this is one of those occasions. He's been spring cleaning with unexpected consequences. Still, it'll make a good story.

KJ Hannah Greenberg is finding it difficult to feed the family - especially the large ones - without spending a fortune. What about quinoa? That's cheap and nutritious, they'll love it!

it says "poems"

Martin Friel has written another poem. Every month I sit here and ponder on the place of Winamop in this world. Is it worth the time and money that I expend upon it? What is the point of me doing it?
Well.. This is the point. (Thanks Martin).

John D Robinson returns with a new collection of five excellent poems; this time examining the life of a poet in some detail - and it doesn't look too healthy. Is it too late to consider a detox?

JD DeHart has created a "prose poem" for us next. Looks like prose, reads like poetry. Well.. why not? It's called Faulkner in February.

Jim Spriggs has written nothing at all...

It's about this time that an Easter bunny comes on and says "That's All Folks" and I crawl back under the bed-clothes until next month.

In order to ensure that there is an edition next month I'll be needing some submissions. The E-Mail button is - as always - at the bottom of the page.

¡hasta luego! as they may say in the Canary Islands (if I've got my Spanish right).





Something you missed? Catch up on previous editions by clicking this word. They are all there, right back to 2003.




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!
