March 2024

I suppose I should be indulging in some eggs-cruciating puns as it's Easter season? But many of us don't partake and it's no yoke - sorry, joke - thinking of these things. I guess I'll have to hatch a new plan and get cracking on the March edition of Winamop? It's free, you don't have to shell out for it!

Before we do, I need to tell you that KJ Hannah Greenberg has a new collection of short stories out. The title is An Orbit of Chairs and it's available through Amazon.

Gary Beck, who is featured in this edition, also has a new novel out - Until the Bell - which you can get from Amazon.. Where else?

OK then, on we go.


it says "stories"

Andrew Lee-Hart. The legend of Merlin, Arthur and Queen Guinevere lives on in Andrew's latest story. Alice is a student at Bangor University when she meets a strange man on the Menai bridge.

Martin Green has been with us for many years and it's good to see that he is still writing stories. Here is his first for 2024. It's about an unreliable friend. My Friend Billy.

Terry Brinkman has a short story for us today. It's about skiing and when you might consider giving it up? It's called Season Pass.

KJ Hannah Greenberg's story this time suggests that maybe money does grow on trees.. or at least, on vines. It's called Grape Leaves and it contains aliens. You have been warned.

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!
