May 2024

Once again I've dillied and dallied until almost the end of the month, but it does mean that this is a truly massive edition!

What a whopper.

Before we get going, a couple of notices: KJ Hannah Greenberg has a new book out called "Word Magpie" and it's available in paperback from Amazon.

Also with a new book, this time it's an e-book, is Martin Green whose "Potpourri VI" is available on Amazon.

Let's get started with the new edition in which I welcome two new contributors; Chelsea Allen with a great story, and Richard LeDue with some super poems. It's good to have you both on board.

Here we go.

Andrew Lee-Hart's story is about a love affair lasting Twenty Years. Does it end happily ever-after? Well it does happen to be an extra-marital affair...

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!
