We did it!

Thanks to all those who rallied round, put fingers to keyboards and wrote until they could write no more. That elite band of authors and poets which you see arrayed below.

Fine contributors all.

So, this edition may be a little behind schedule but it's a good one.

I hope that you enjoy it.

Before we get started I must just mention contributor Bruce Harris' new book "Odds Against" which contains 15 of his award winning stories and is published in aid of the Huntington's disease association. Find it at

it says "stories"

Kristy Kerruish [BIO] brings us a story about a couple of archaeologists who have unearthed a stone head. It's obviously very old but, as it was buried in the ground it can't mean much to the locals can it? It's called The Beltane Fires.

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 400 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!
