September 2022

Our sizzling summer is continuing into autumn here in the UK, so the temptation is to be outside, not sitting in front of a PC preparing Winamop!

I am of course dedicated to my work and so are the contributors who have, err, contributed this month.

Before we get started I must tell you that KJ Hannah Greenberg has a new book out called "Granny Does It, Vol.II" available at Amazon. Also hot off the press is Gary Beck's poetry collection "Double Envelopment" which explores social, political and economic issues. Finally, Mark Anthony Pearce's seventh book, ‘Shopping for a New Penis’ is now available to purchase for £6.00, from Hickathrift Press.

That's three Christmas present ideas right there! Oops, sorry, I mentioned Christmas in September..

On to the new material.

it says "stories"

Andrew Lee-Hart's story is about a librarian whose life is coming apart, her relationships at home and at work are deteriorating. It's called Life Seconds Numbering.

Paul Murgatroyd has a story about a chance meeting, a face from the past. Maybe there could be a spark rekindled after all these years? Read Jan and find out...

J.B.Pick was one of the founding fathers of this august publication and there are many of his poems and stories on the site. However, I realised recently that one of my favourite poems of his: An Ode To Tea wasn't included. Well it is now!

Well that's it for this month, thanks for joining us and we'll be back around the middle of October, probably getting confused about daylight saving time!

Remember, tea in a cup does your moral laces up.

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!
