19th August.

Welcome to the sizzling August edition of Winamop. Our contributors have been working hard to fill it with the finest stories and poetry - when they could have been away on holiday. That's how dedicated they are.

If you're lying on a beach somewhere or trekking up a rock-strewn mountain I hope you enjoy reading it. On second thoughts, if you are trekking up a rock-strewn mountain you'd probably better look where you're going and read Winamop at base camp!

Ready? Set. Go!

John D Robinson is back with a new set of poems. John tells me that he has recently published a chapbook of poetry with Ben John Smith (editor: Horror Sleaze and Trash) called 'Damned Dirty & Dangerous' through Holy&intoxicated Publications. Get it now.. I have to warn you about these new poems with a big red R because some of them are pretty strong stuff. Good though!.

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!
