April 8th

April at last, the days are lengthening, the sap is rising and all is spring like... well it is if you are North of the equator as I am. If you are down South I guess you are seeing the leaves turning yellow and the temperature falling?

I like seasons.

But enough of this idle chit-chat, I need to get down to business and introduce the new edition of Winamop!

It's time for chapter 4 of Martin Friel's book When the Traffic Lights Stopped. We meet Ben and Marjory, the next two bright and hopeful "People's Politicians". read this!


Donal Mahoney doesn't particularly like bananas, especially when they aren't properly looked after. This story concerns a woman who has very poor banana management skills. Going bananas is the this!


It's a wee while since we heard from our Scottish girls on a trip to Switzerland way back in 1908. This fascinating insight into a time gone by continues now as they continue via St Beatenberg and Interlaken. If only the German climbers had taken notice of the this!


Now to poetry and Bruce Harris has sent us three new ones on subjects ranging from childhood memories to armed assassins. They are A Yacht in the Bay, August Playground and Blue Suit this!


Regular story-teller Martin Green has decided to turn his hand to poetry and here are the results. The poems are called That Afternoon in Golden Gate Park and The Small Pleasures of Being this!


Finally to KJ Hannah Greenberg, another contributor equally at home with prose and poetry. This time she has a poem about the state of humanity. It's called Amid Giants’ Awkward this!


The next time I address you will be in May, please contribute to the site if you feel disposed so to do, it keeps us going you know.

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!
