March 2018

Just when we thought spring had sprung, the "beast from the east" blew in to the UK.

No, not Mr Putin, but a spell of icy weather streaming in from Siberia. Brr!

Time to stay indoors in the warm and assemble Winamop for March.

It seems as if our contributors have been snuggled up to their warm PCs too and have produced a bumper crop of writing for us this time.

Let's get started..

it says "stories"

KJ Hannah Greenberg is probably our most prolific contributor, for which I am duly grateful. She has been with us since 2008, but her story this time concerns an even longer relationship. It's called Thirty-Four Years or So, Give or Take a Shoe.

Harry Downey, last with us in 2015, has come back to the fold with this tale of skullduggery and tax avoidance. Read A Rose By Any Other Name.

Andrew Lee-Hart is a fine story-teller who has brought us many great reads. Here we visit a parallel existence where tolerance is seriously lacking. Uncomfortably close to home I think. Read Hugh and decide.

George Aitch BIO has this tale of two students on a trip down to London. Their favourite band is playing at last and this will be a show not to be missed! Read We Go Out .

it says "poems"

Michael Lee Johnson has contributed poems before and this time his poems are illustrated with pictures. Audio of him reading them is also available. A multimedia experience! We start with Heaven is My Horse Fly.

John Sweet has been in Winamop a couple of times and here he is again with another five rather good poems.They are: time, in all directions, Universe A, Glorified, this is the fire and looks up, shoots at the sky.

John D Robinson appears to live a colourful life, judging by the company he keeps in his poems! Here we have Spiteful Annie, The Alien Object, Business As Usual, ‘I’m Making Movies’ and Welcome Back To Work Interview.

A.J. Huffman writes emotional and insightful poems and we are happy to have five new poems on the site this time. I Dream in Seclusion, Aquamarine, Rainbow Bridge, Glitter Unplugged and Of Egg.

Gerard Sarnat is celebrating a Jewish heritage and mourning the loss of life due to the Californian droughts, fires and floods. The collection comes with pictures and is called Spring Fever Transcend Dances .

That's the lot for March, here's hoping that spring will be back soon here in the top half of the planet.

I already have a few pieces for April so it looks as if that should be a good edition too. Don't foget to come back and see us soon.

Remember that it is our fifteenth birthday in May so I am looking for birthday or anniversary related material for that special edition. Not long 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 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!
