June 2019

This month is often described as "flaming June" but this year is more like "flooding June" over here in the dis-United Kingdom of Brexitshire.

I've got my wellies on as I type this just in case the heavens open again.

There's plenty of sunshine in the Winamop inbox though, we have stories and poems galore. So shut the windows and draw the curtains, there's no point in going out there and getting wet when you can stay indoors and read Winamop!

Off we go:

it says "stories"

KJ Hannah Greenberg is advocating getting along with others. Who can argue with that as a sentiment in this troubled world? Read Sugar, Spice, Earthworms, and Entrails.

Andrew Lee Hart takes us back to the 17th century for this story of love in difficult times. It's called simply; Gardens, but there's more to it than that..

Simon King goes inside the heads of famous names from the past. This time he imagines the night before a big match in the hotel room of Argentinian soccer manager Marcelo Bielsa back in 2002 as he prepared for the FIFA World Cup in Tokyo.

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!
