Join Megaphone for the launch of our 68-page 'Voices of the Street' literary issue at the The Waldorf Hotel on Tuesday, May 3rd. The event will feature powerful readings of poetry and prose from the marginalized writers featured in this issue.
All proceeds raised from the event will go toward Megaphone's community writing workshop project, which is run in treatment centres, social housing buildings and community centres in Vancouver's inner-city. Content from 'Voices of the Street' came from these workshops.
The spring Megaphone needs to raise $5,000 to keep its eight writing workshop classes running. Your ticket will help Megaphone continue to make sure everyone in our city has a voice. This issue is co-sponsored by PHS Community Services Society and Poetry is Dead magazine and is part of the City of Vancouver's 125th anniversary celebrations.
(If you are unable to attend the event, please consider purchasing a ticket as a donation to our writing workshop program.)
