June 2021

Well it's taken a while but after a long gestation the June edition of Winamop is flying free for all to see.

I imagine some of our contributors have been otherwise occupied what with "things" being as they are?

Anyway, what we have here is a compact but high performance edition.

Let's start..


it says "stories"

George Gad Economou has been drinking again, if he'd been sober he may have been able to save the old blue couch.. New furniture just doesn't have the same character, as we find out in Renovation Blues.

KJ Hannah Greenberg. Teresa has standards, she wants to change things for the better. Perhaps getting rid of her unsatisfactory lover Liam will help? Find out in Awful Aim whether it does or not.

Andrew Lee-Hart has been to Clifton Hall, but it's a strange world out there, what with the war and all that..

it says "ART"

KJ Hannah Greenberg has some photography for this edition, and it's all arborial.

Terry Brinkman has added another picture to his collection of, now twelve, art works. Have a look at Yellowstone, and all the others too if you like.

it says "poems"

Fabrice B. Poussin returns to Winamop for the first time this year with a new suite of poems. They are: Forgotten Shadow - Gusts - Night Crawlers - The little life I saw and Watching her Become.

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!
