Listen to the stories

We have invited our fantastic team of volunteer tutors to read some of the primary school stories. The stories were written by children from schools all over Ireland at Fighting Words workshops.

Click on the link to listen. Feel free to write an ending to your favourite one.

We hope you enjoy them!

Fighting Words wishes to acknowledge the support of Creative Ireland for this programme #CreativeIreland #InThisTogether
