While loosely aimed at middle-graders (8-12 yrs) there are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to reading, so we’ve titled the collection accordingly. We hope, of course, that the stories will be enjoyed by parents too – and older siblings and aunts and uncles et al for that matter – but felt the title “12 Down and Possibly Up” a little too convoluted. In a nutshell then, here are twelve short stories written primarily with younger readers in mind. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them.

One image and twelve unique stories from the Tunbridge Wells Writers. Who is the man walking past the Peroni advertisement? What relationship does he have to the two old men?

Enjoy these twelve stories about a seemingly insignificant moment captured in Italy, preserved and misunderstood thereafter.‘In That Number’ is a story about change, and one man’s uncertainty as he heads irrevocably towards a reckoning that will leave his world unrecognizable. It’s not up to him who goes with him and who stays behind, and as he heads towards the unknown, he reflects on what’s come to pass, what may yet be, and the weight of the choices which have led him to this junction. This enigmatic short story was partially inspired by the song ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’, with particular credit to the Bruce Springsteen version.
