Stories for Adults from WobblingPen

Some of our Adult Stories, are tales of life-changing events. Others are light-hearted antidotes which may make you think or laugh.

Why not take a break from daily life and enjoy reading some of our stories? Some have audio recordings you can play as well.

Remember, if you have any favorite poems from our collection, WobblingPen would be happy to attend a Spoken Word event at your book club or library and read the poems of your choice.  We love meeting our readers in person!

Wobbly loves writing stories, poems and songs!

Wobbly believes that everyone has a writer inside them.  At WobblingPen we think that anyone should pick up a pen or get on their tablet or laptop if they feel the urge to write. Don't be scared, just let your feelings out and capture the moment!

Poems or stories which you might be struggling to put into words can get a lot easier to write if you aren't afraid to just give it try.

Do not forget to read your working outs to your children and anyone who might listen. Share your love of a story.
