February 2018

Here we go again!

It seems that our contributors have approached 2018 with great enthusiasm and started producing books galore!

First we hear from Bruce Harris whose new book of stories The Guy Thing - which he has published to raise money for Huntington's Disease charities - is now out (excerpt featured this month). His partner of over thirty years, Anthony, was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease in October 2016 and since then Bruce has been working to raise money for Huntington’s Disease research. The book is available here.

Bruce's stories are excellent as you will know if you've read any of the ones we have featured in the past. Here.

Adam Kluger has a new illustrated collection of flash fiction: Desperate Times: Short Stories (45 stories) which, he says: "Has miraculously been published by a wonderful French Publisher, Belphegor Editions. It's available on Amazon as a paperback and is soon to be translated into French for the French Book Market".

Also new on the market from one of our contributors is Gary Beck's short story collection Now I Accuse. "Diving deep into love, enmity, compassion, and regret, acclaimed poet Gary Beck brings us through the complexities of life with his brilliant collection". Find it at Winter Goose Publishing.

Bruce Harris's book The Guy Thing is out, as mentioned above, and we are lucky to have an excerpt from it to whet your appetite. It's a story of school days - but relevant to life at any age. Read Us and Them.

JD DeHart brings us a piece of "Prose Poetry" this time, I'm in a quandary as to where it should go. Should it be in the Prose or the Poetry section? Well, it's here now and it's called Green Sandal Monologue.

J.B. Pick started a satirical literary journal called "POINT" back in 1957. In this article from the first edition (which hardly anyone read) we meet Adam Picklewit and John Charlatan, stars of the book "A Land Fit For 'Eros" which also came out in that year. You now have the chance to find out about The True History of Vacuism - an entirely new art movement..

It's funny how things ebb and flow isn't it? Everyone's publishing books and writing poetry but we're a bit short of stories this month. If you have a story in you I'd love you to send it in to Winamop. The e-mail button is at the bottom of the page.

I already have lots of poetry for March.. let's hope we can find some fiction (or fact) too!

See you next time.

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!
