8thFebruary 2017

February already? We'll have this year all done and dusted in no time!

I have just returned from Scotland where the weather was doing nothing in particular so I haven't been able to build a snowman. Most disappointing.

I have been able to get February's edition of Winamop underway though, and to prove it - here it is..

it says "stories"

Donal Mahoney's story this month concerns a married couple with a nocturnal problem. No, not that sort of nocturnal problem! It was what might be termed "restless sleep"; very restless sleep. A cure was eventually found..

It's good to have Martin Green back on the site with a new story. It's an inevitable consequence of getting old that you tend to become forgetful; our protagonist has lost his cap.. he'd probably lose his head if it were loose!

Steve Slavin returns to Winamop next with his story The Runner. It comes from To the City, with Love, which was recently published by Martin Sisters Publishing. Ready, set, go!

KJ Hannah Greenberg goes back to story-telling this time and here she relates the tale of a photographer "down and out in New York City" and looking for that break. It's called Serendipity.

it says "poems"

The poetry section is headed up by Gary Beck with a sample from his unpublished collection Fractional Disorder which examines the anomalies, frequently unnoticed, that confound us. The poems are: Preservation, Change is Constant, Fallen Empire, Downturn’and Rabid Disease.

I have another introduction to make: Stephen Philip Druce is a poet from Shrewsbury here in the UK and he has sent four unpublished poems for us. They are Sea Creature Disco, Sugar River, Real Friends and She Is Sci-Fi.

That was good wasn't it?

I do hope you'll pay Winamop another visit in the near future and, if you are that way inclined, perhaps contribute yourself?

There's an email button at the bottom of the page which will put you in contact with me.

Bye for now.

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!
