Super Paua Stories is an audio storytelling podcast for children. Series One, created in lockdown 2020, gave us stories of WhatsApp stargazing in lockdown; finding new, beautiful ways to hug; and an uprising of anti-colonial red squirrels. Series 2, Scéalta Super Paua, was a bilingual series (Gaeilge & English) created in collaboration with axis: Ballymun, with stories about mad sheep and wanting to be a banshee when you grow up. 

Super Paua Stories Series 3 is focused on Polish language and culture. We are looking to commission contemporary, playful and exciting stories for children that:

  • Are written in Polish
  • Are bilingual, with one of the languages being Polish
  • Are written in English with a focus on Polish culture, Polish stories, or Polish experience in Ireland

Opowiadania Super Paua 3 to nasz kolejny projekt, tym razem skupiający się na języku polskim i kulturze polskiej. Czekamy na zgłoszenia od wszystkich, którzy chcieliby spróbować swoich sił w twórczym pisaniu współczesnych, zabawnych i ekscytujących historii dla dzieci, które:

  • Są napisane w języku polskim
  • Są dwujęzyczne (polsko-angielskie)
  • Są napisane w języku angielskim, ale tematycznie skupiają się na kulturze polskiej, opowieściach polskich lub polskich doświadczeniach w Irlandii.

Find out more and apply via the link.  Successful writers will be offered a €500 commission for a 10-15min audio story, with dramaturgical support.  Applications are due by 11:59pm on Mon 8 March.  Contact superpaua@gmail.com with any questions.

We are also offering a free workshop about writing for young people on Mon 22 Feb- to find out more or register, click here.
