August 2019

Oh deary me! We're WAY overdue with the August edition of the mighty 'mop but here it is at last.

At the beginning of the month I was sitting here wondering if there was going to be enough material but then it started to arrive - more and more - until we amassed the super-abundance of great stuff which you can see below!

Dive in..

it says "stories"

Andrew Lee Hart kicks things off with the story of Tobias Bennet, a devilishly talented musician with some devilish habits. His journey through life seems to leave a trail of destruction. Where will it end? Find out in Discord.

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!
