We held our second annual writing workshop this summer for Junior High and High School students in Chanleas Dai. The workshop was facilitated by Ream Nuon, who has recently published a few short stories of his own. During the workshop, the students studied the foundations of writing and drawing. After learning the basics of storytelling, students wrote and illustrated their own adventures. By the end of the workshop, the students had created 12 original short stories. Over the next year we’ll be sharing all these stories with you, translated from Khmer to English, as a regular feature of our monthly newsletter.

First up is Paung Paung’s Dream, a story which inspires us all to pursue our dreams, no matter how far-fetched they may seem…

Paung Paung's Dream

  1. 1. Paung  Paung  is  a  big  snail  who  likes  living  both  in  the  water  and  on  the  ground.  
  2. 2. One  day,  Paung  Paung  wanted  to  fly  to  the  top  of  the  mountain,  but  he  had  no  wings.  Paung  Paung  walked  into  the  jungle  to  look  for  wings.  Sadly,  he  couldn’t  find  any.    
  3. 3. Then,  he  met  a  crab.  Paung  Paung  asked,  “Brother  Crab  do  you  have  wings?”    “Sorry,  I  don’t  have  any,“  Brother  Crab  replied.  
  4. 4. AIer  that,  Paung  Paung  met  a  pigeon  whose  wings  had  just  been  decorated  colorfully  and  beauJfully.    
  5. 5. Paung  Paung  said,  “Brother  Pigeon,  can  you  give  me  your  wings?”  Brother  Pigeon  replied,  “I’m  sorry  I  can’t,  because  I  just  painted  them.”  
  6. 6. It  began  to  rain  heavily.  Paung  Paung  was  so  exhausted.  He  took  a  rest  under  a  big  tree.  
  7. 7. When  the  rain  stopped,  Paung  Paung  decided  to  go  back  to  his  home.  
  8. 8. On  the  way  home,  he  saw  lots  of  feathers.  
  9. 9. He  was  very  happy  and  collected  all  the  feathers,  and  put  them  together  to  make  two  big  wings.    
  10. 10. He  put  the  two  wings  on  his  body  and  happily  flew  to  the  top  of  the  mountain.  He  finally  achieved  his  dream!
