SOMETIMES THE SCARIEST STORIES ARE THE ONES CLOSEST TO HOME
OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG STORYTELLERS IN NSW, AGED 14-18
Eerie Street is a podcast of maybe-true horror stories written and recorded by young people from across NSW.
Ghostly tales and grizzly stories inspired by the dark rumours, handed down histories and local hearsay that springs from each of their hometowns.
Matriark Theatre is looking for a team of young storytellers from across the state to help us create this terrifying podcast.
Starting in mid-January 2021, successful applicants will attend a workshop program and receive mentorship from writer and storyteller extraordinaire Phil Spencer (ABC Radio Fictions, Story Club).
The chosen stories will be professionally produced and recorded as a part of the Eerie Street podcast series.
This is a unique opportunity for young storytellers to develop their skills and connect with like-minded young people from across NSW. We are particularly keen on hearing from regional and rural young storytellers.
