2019's still going very well isn't it?
Oh dear, I really haven't been taking much notice, but I'm
sure it'll all turn out for the best.. after all, what's the worst that can
Oh, I see, that is pretty bad.. but never mind all
that doom and gloom, the new edition of Winamop is out!
We have old favourites and new contributors all with
something to say.
Here we go:
Kevan Youde was last with us in
September and I'm very happy to welcome him back with this story of office
politics and the drive to get ahead.. literally! Read Three Eyes.
Martin Green, as has been said
before, is getting old. This story, called A Day in April sees him on a
typical day, just going about his business when something odd happens.
Aubrey Malone, is new to Winamop
but has been writing for ages. Here is his Bob Dylan related story King Bob,
Approximately. See how many song titles you can spot.
KJ Hannah Greenberg brings us
poetry this time, three new pomes in fact: Nuclear Springtime - I Observed
The World and Pleomorphic Happiness. Just so you know, pleomorphism
is the ability of some micro-organisms to alter their shape or size in response
to environmental conditions. Educational and entertainling!
Fabrice Poussin [BIO] has brought us both art
and poetry in the past and this time he is in poetic mood with Breaking
Away - Collapse - Forever Ago - Her Domain and Like a Pearl. Try
them, I think he has a really nice touch.
Tohm Bakelas is also new to Winamop
and he introduces himself with this fine poem about a time that we have all
dreaded at some times in our lives: Monday Morning.
John D Robinson returns for the
new year with a collection of poems that will make you laugh, cry and - best of
all - think. Try The Iron Door - The Punk Rock Kitchen - The Sinking - When
The Gig Is Up and Hand It Over.
Bruce J. Berger is another newbie
round here and he has written a Prose poem in Three Parts which is well
worth a read.
Time for me to pack up my belongings in a red-spotted
hankerchief, hang them on a pole which I shall carry over my shoulder as I
sneak back into a dark corner of the internet where nobody can find me until
Except of course if you would like to contribute to the
next edition (which I'd very much appreciate). Just send me your stories,
poems, art of whatever you have created via the "Mail us" button at the bottom
of the page.
Until we meet again. Goodbye!
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
