Hooray! We're back on track with a fine collection of stories, art and poetry. Thanks to all our contributors, many of whom have contributed multiple items.

I am also very pleased to introduce new contributor Mike Hickman to the fold, see his story below.

Before we get into it I must just tell you that prolific writer and some-time Winamop contributor Gary Beck has a new book of poetry out, it's called "Motifs" and is available through Amazon. (what isn't...?)

Here we go then..

Well that's it for now, we've reached the end of this bumper edition. I hope that you found something you liked?

All the best.




Something you missed? Catch up on previous editions by clicking this word. They are all there, right back to 2003.




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!
