For bold, creative writing from voices often silenced, be sure to pick up your copy of Voices of the Street from a vendor this spring.
Each year, Voices of the Street offers a collection of poems, stories, essays and creative writing by Megaphone vendors and other writers marginalized by poverty and homelessness, many of whom have participated in Megaphone’s writing workshops.
The release of the collection is marked with a launch event, featuring readings and a meet-and-greet with authors and Megaphone vendors. The event sells out every year, so be sure to subscribe to our email list to be the first to know when tickets become available.
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.
Megaphone has been publishing Voices of the Street since 2012. Start your own collection today with a visit to your local vendor.
