Last spring Megaphone and Simon Fraser University came together to start a new type of writing workshop class called ‘Community Journalism’. We wanted to give residents of the neighbourhood to tell the stories that are going on in their community in their own voice.
The participants came from all walks of life and each person brought unique life experiences to the class that informed their interest in learning more about journalism. From inside a welfare cheque lineup, to community and camaraderie, Megaphone #108 shows some of the graduating class’ stories.
Also in this issue: We keep our Find a Vendor contest going; give you a preview of the Our Voices reading event at Cafe Deux Soleils; break down the Mayor's affordable housing task force report; and Poncho takes you on a twisted ride.
