March 2019

2019's still going very well isn't it?

Isn't it?

Oh dear, I really haven't been taking much notice, but I'm sure it'll all turn out for the best.. after all, what's the worst that can happen?

Oh, I see, that is pretty bad.. but never mind all that doom and gloom, the new edition of Winamop is out!

We have old favourites and new contributors all with something to say.

Here we go:

it says "stories"

Kevan Youde was last with us in September and I'm very happy to welcome him back with this story of office politics and the drive to get ahead.. literally! Read Three Eyes.

Martin Green, as has been said before, is getting old. This story, called A Day in April sees him on a typical day, just going about his business when something odd happens.

Aubrey Malone, is new to Winamop but has been writing for ages. Here is his Bob Dylan related story King Bob, Approximately. See how many song titles you can spot.

it says "poems"

KJ Hannah Greenberg brings us poetry this time, three new pomes in fact: Nuclear Springtime - I Observed The World and Pleomorphic Happiness. Just so you know, pleomorphism is the ability of some micro-organisms to alter their shape or size in response to environmental conditions. Educational and entertainling!

Fabrice Poussin [BIO] has brought us both art and poetry in the past and this time he is in poetic mood with Breaking Away - Collapse - Forever Ago - Her Domain and Like a Pearl. Try them, I think he has a really nice touch.

Tohm Bakelas is also new to Winamop and he introduces himself with this fine poem about a time that we have all dreaded at some times in our lives: Monday Morning.

John D Robinson returns for the new year with a collection of poems that will make you laugh, cry and - best of all - think. Try The Iron Door - The Punk Rock Kitchen - The Sinking - When The Gig Is Up and Hand It Over.

Bruce J. Berger is another newbie round here and he has written a Prose poem in Three Parts which is well worth a read.

Time for me to pack up my belongings in a red-spotted hankerchief, hang them on a pole which I shall carry over my shoulder as I sneak back into a dark corner of the internet where nobody can find me until next month.

Except of course if you would like to contribute to the next edition (which I'd very much appreciate). Just send me your stories, poems, art of whatever you have created via the "Mail us" button at the bottom of the page.

Until we meet again. Goodbye!




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!
