Tales from the Upper Room


How we came to publish this one

Our own Debz Hobbs-Wyatt put this one together. It is a compilation of work from a creative-writing group that she runs near her home.  

The title

The “upper room” come for the place where they meet: in the upper room of St Nicholas’ Church on Canvey Island.     

Some notes about the process

Three editors, three members of the Canvey Writers St Nicholas Group worked on editing this. Contributions are also by its members and much of the editing no doubt also went on informally as part of the normal activity of the group.  

The cover

The cover’s intriguing staircase invites you into the book; what awaits in the upper room? Which stories and poems will delight you in the book?

Some notes about style

There is quite a mixture of pieces here – stories, poems, flash fiction. Each piece is different and each piece has the unique voice of its author.  

Who we think the reader is

Certainly these stories are for readers who like to be intrigued. No doubt friends, family, fans and followers of the Canvey Writers will enjoy these offerings as will many of our fan base of readers.   

What else

The profit share on the book supports a charity: Havens Hospices:
www.havenshospices.org.uk who help adults and children in Essex. Their message is simple, but one we should all heed. It’s about ‘making every day count.’
