September 2023

Well here we are again and it's September already!

It's a bit sparse on the fiction front this time but thanks to Andrew and KJ Hannah Greenberg we have something for you.

No such deficit in the poetry department though. A veritable cornucopia of verse. Thanks once more to all our contributors.

Please enjoy this edition.

it says "stories"

Andrew Lee-Hart. A new art gallery is about to open, but what to call it? Surely there must be a local artist we can name it after? That might prove to be quite difficult.. Find out why in Sketch.

KJ Hannah Greenberg has a story about Safta's Valise which Safta brings when she visits. A suitcase might contain many things, what's in this one?

Great stuff. I hope to bring you another edition in a month or so but it's all dependent on my receiving enough material.

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

Until we meet again!




Something you missed? Catch up on previous editions by clicking this word. They are all there, right back to 2003.




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!
