October 2018

October ought to be the 8th month really, what with "octo" being Latin for eight.. It's all because the year used to start in March so April would be month 1, May month 2, and so on, making October the eighth month. Then about 450 years ago some busy-body came along and moved the start of the year to January. Oh well, if we didn't know any Latin I don't suppose it'd bother us?

Why am I wittering about this anyway? Whatever the month is called, it's time for Winamop!

This month I bring news of a new book by Andrew Lee-Hart through Wild Wolf Publishing. Find it here

On to the content..

it says "stories"

KJ Hannah Greenberg has written a short piece for us this month. Short but sweet! It's called The Whiteness of Sheets.

Robert Steward introduces himself to Winamop with a fine story set in an English class in Bologna, Italy a few years ago. Read Imagine.

Martin Green used to have a cat. For all I know he may still have a cat, but not this one, this was his first cat and her name was Mickey.

Andrew Lee-Hart returns with a story of a well-respected(?) teacher in a primary school. He'd been there for years and years. We begin at the end; at his funeral. The title is Shepherd, mainly because that was his name.

Margaret McNee. Lastly we continue to follow the diary of a group of young Scots on a "grand tour" of Switzerland in 1908. This time they visit the Lutschinenschlucht and have some tea!

it says "poems"

Sandeep Kumar Mishra is a new name to us [BIO] and he brings us a collection of five interesting poems. They are: The Books - My gallery has ended - The Death of the Seas - I Painted an Ocean and A Rainbow Memory.

EG Ted Davis is also new to Winamop and introduces himself with this poem Just plain ordinary Jesus. He's not impressed..

Things swung the other way this month; lots of stories and not so many poems, that hasn't happened for a long time.

I'm not complaining though, it was all good stuff and I hope that you enjoyed it.

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!
