Megaphone's annual literary edition Voices of the Street is sold on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria by Megaphone's homeless and low-income vendors. Vendors buy each book for $5 and sell them for $10, keeping the profit. Voices of the Street is Megaphone's annual collection of poems, stories, essays and creative writing from our vendors, writing workshop participants, and other writers marginalized by poverty and homelessness.
It is a joy and a privilege to be invited into the raw and creative world of the writers published in Voices of the Street. The stories shared are in turn moving, heartfelt, funny, and inspiring. Voices of the Street amplifies stories not often heard, and elevates their writers to the platform they deserve.
The book launches in April and usually sells from April to August. To get your limited edition copy, find where Megaphone's street vendors usually sell using the Megaphone App.
