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

Successful writers will be offered a €500 commission for a 10-15min audio story, with dramaturgical support.
