March 2021

Hello from locked-down Scotland, I'm perfectly fine honestly, not going mad at all. Definitely not. I'm OK really.

Wibble.

Oh sorry, don't know what came over me, let's get on with the news.

Bruce J. Berger (see his poetry below) tells me that he has published his first novel, The Flight of the Veil. See the Youtube trailer.

I must also let you know that sometime contributor Mark Anthony Pearce has just published his latest book "Wheelchair Tony" and it's available from Between Shadows Press.

That's that then, mentions have been mentioned, time to get down to this month's rather late edition. There's a lot to enjoy.

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!
