July 5th

Good day world. I am speaking to you today from my usual seat in my usual room in my usual house. The only unusual thing is that the weather is lovely.

It's almost too nice to be in here at all, so let's get down to business straight away and bring you the latest edition of dear old Winamop.

First up Donal Mahoney regales us with a story about Canada Geese, those great-big birds that set up home around our park ponds.. What can be done about them? Read Goose Eggs.

Next its Martin Green who returns with a tale of The First Time when young love first blossomed. How innocent it all was back then!
read this!


Now to KJ Hannah Greenberg, who has a new book called Cryptids coming out. Click the link for more info. Her story today is about an overweight chimera who tries to gain knowledge and enlightenment by eating knowledgeable and enlightened people.. It's called New Heights.

Poetry is up next and regular contributor Paul Tristram returns with six more poems. If there's a theme it's probably one of travel, or perhaps not..

Now I'm delighted to welcome Katie Lewington to Winamop [bio]. She has a great sense of humour and and observation. Here are three of her previously unpublished poems.

We end this edition with five great new poems from Frank C. Praeger who has contributed to Winamop many times before. These are his first for us this year.

Well, that's all I have for you today, jolly good wasn't it? There's already some waiting in the wings for the August edition so don't forget to come back and see what's going on.

Enjoy the sun.

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!
