July 2019

It was fifty years ago that man, well two men, walked on the moon. In fact they jumped about a bit too I seem to remember. It's all to do with the lower gravity up there.

We only deal with the gravest gravity here at Winamop, everything is deadly serious.. apart from the things that aren't of course, which - come to think of it - is quite a lot of it!

May I draw your attention to some new product out there by our contributors? KJ Hannah Greenberg's newest volume of poetry, The Wife/Mom, has just been launched by Seashell Books and Martin Green's latest compilation of short stories called Potpourri II, Stories, Observations & Essays is out in a Kindle edition.

So now you know. Enough of my waffling, let's get into the new edition, it's packed with good stuff.

it says "stories"

Aubrey Malone. Back in 1969, exactly fifty years ago, a young man was about to leave rural County Mayo for a new life in Dublin. Meanwhile on the moon the Eagle had landed. Read A Small Step.

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!
