April 2021

Welcome to the slightly delayed April issue of Winamop.

As you can see below we have copious quantities of poetry and some art but I was waiting for another story to arrive, I like to have three or four stories in an issue. Thanks to Alex for stepping in to provide that extra tale.

The quantity of fiction may be low but the quality is excellent!

Before we get underway I have some parish notices to tell you about..

Arthur L Wood is a new contributor this month (see the poems below) and he'd like to let everyone know that his new book 'Poems for Susan' is available via his web-site: Poetry From The Shires. Welcome Arthur!

Also proudly announcing a new publication is Mark Anthony Pearce who's latest book "Wheelchair Tony" is now available at Between Shadows Press.

Notices read? Then here we go!

John Sweet [BIO] returns to Winamop with a new collection of poetry and I get the impression that he's not happy about the state of the world. Read the obvious fear - still - uncrowned king - the burning gift - poem like a dream held up to a mirror and other thoughts in the age of ruin.

KJ Hannah Greenberg's poetry is becoming harder edged. We have Protecting Your Yahoo - That Klaxon Sound on Yom HaShoah and Long Ago, on a Halfway Hill. "Yom HaShoah" is Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel, which was on April 7th and 8th this year.

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!
