November 2021

Late again, but in my defence I must point out that it's my birthday and I am now very old!

Let's celebrate by taking the wrapping off a nice new edition of Winamop.

Talk of wrapping reminds me that the next edition will be the Christmas one, so If you have any seasonal material to contribute, now is the time.

Just before diving in, let me tell you that Mark Anthony Pearce's third book "A Smile As Sad As Sunday" is out at Between Shadows Press. Also Gary Beck's new 105 page book of poems "Turbulence" is available at Amazon. I'm sure I've heard of them..

Here we go:

Andrew Lee-Hart takes us back to the sixties to meet Clara, a once-famous actress then treading the boards in small venues. She meets a young writer who may be able to help her with her memoirs, then the trouble starts..

KJ Hannah Greenberg has a story for us. It's always a risk to bring in one species to control another, especially if the species you're controlling is human-kind. Predators’ Allies is the title.

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!
