Last May Megaphone held a launch event at the Waldorf Hotel for our special literary issue, Voices of the Street.
Leading off the night was Megaphone vendor James Witwicki, who wowed the crowd with his brilliant poetry. Every time I read or listen to James' work, I am constantly floored by the voice of the work—which is so honest of aware, even in confusion and pain.
He is just one of the many talented writers, poets and photographers that live in the Downtown Eastside. Please support these incredible artists by purchasing a copy of Voices of the Street (and regular issues of Megaphone) from our vendors.
Many thanks to Rita Godbout for her fantastic video and editing work.
