January 2024

It's a brand new year and all we've had so far in the UK is storms. They go through the alphabet with names for them and we're already up to the letter J with the current one "Jocelyn". We'll probably get to Zechariah by April at this rate..

Great weather for staying indoors and reading Winamop then?

Yes, I couldn't agree more (which isn't surprising as I suggested it!)

Before we get to the new edition, I must inform you that both Gary Beck and KJ Hannah Greenberg have new books out. Gary's new novel is called "Rescue Me" and is available at Amazon and Hannah Greenberg's book of poetry is called "Subrogation" and is also available at Amazon.

Good luck with those new books people and now let's get going with this impressively substantial edition of Winamop.

 

it says "stories"

Andrew Lee-Hart brings us the story of a composer whose life has taken a turn for the worse, until he meets a new muse and things get complicated. Quartet is the title.

Well, there was a lot to get your teeth into there wasn't there?

I don't suppose we'll be able to keep up this frenetic pace throughout the year but it's a strong start.

I am very grateful to all those who took the time to contribute, without you, we have nothing..

If you feel you have something to contribute - stories, poems art or music - please do so and together we'll keep Winamop going. The email button is at the bottom of this page.

Onwards into the next storm!

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!
