April 8th

I like the spring time. The days are becoming longer, it's not cold and dark all the time and there are flowers everywhere.

The only trouble is, although the spring weather has inspired our poets to great heights and I have been inundated with poetry, our story writers our out enjoying the weather and not writing anything!

Donal Mahoney has come up trumps as usual but, if it weren't for him, some 110 year old diaries and a drunken rant we'd be two stories short of an edition.

So, come on story tellers, the gauntlet has been thrown down (it's probably in the bushes over there) and you must rise to the challenge.

Poets; I'm afraid that there is now something of a backlog, I already have enough for the May edition, so I won't need any more for a few weeks - thanks!

Housekeeping over. Here we go..

Donal Mahoney takes a turn towards the macabre this time. Lenny had always borne a grudge against Fred, but Fred didn't take him too seriously. Read The Bully, The Psychopath, Libby and Lorraine.

This time we have a new Page 94 (our satirical essay). Our alcohol correspondent has discovered some good news. I'll drink to that!

Now we return to our group of adventurous Scottish girls and their "grand tour" of Austria and Switzerland in 1908. This time they are on their way up to see the glacier. Brrr!

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!
