11th September.

What's going on with the world? Earthquakes, hurricanes, nuclear sabre-rattling and The Great British Bake-off on Channel 4?

Well, there's not a lot we can do about it, so let's just immerse ourselves in some fine stories and poetry.

Before we start I must tell you about Katie Lewington's new self-published chapbook Popcorn, which you can find here at Amazon. It's well worth a look.

Good, now for the super September edition of Winamop.

I'm really pleased to be able to bring you a splendid selection this time, and our contributors have been working so hard that we've caught up a little time. That means you didn't have to wait a whole month for this edition.

Enough of my waffle, let's get to the good stuff..

it says "stories"

Andrew Lee Hart returns. I have been looking forward to bringing you this story since it arrived, just after August's edition was finished. It's of the usual high quality from Andrew and it's called Dead and Buried.

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 800 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!
