Award-winning Canadian authors show their support for Megaphone's writing workshop program

This spring, Megaphone needs to raise $12,000 to help keep our writing workshop program going. We are half way there.

To help us reach our goal, some of Canada's most acclaimed authors have joined the campaign to show their support.



"Everyone has a story to tell, and we all need to hear all kinds of stories. It's what makes us human. Megaphone's workshop helps bring the quiet, necessary stories of some to the ears of others." — Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi

Help support this important program here (through Hope in Shadows).

Megaphone's writing workshops are run in social housing buildings and treatment and community centres across Vancouver. They give people an opportunity to tell their own stories in their own voice. And by publishing them in Megaphone, everyone in Vancouver can hear them.

"Megaphone's workshops give voice to those vital, silenced stories in our communities, stories that make up the very heart of our social history." — Esi Edugyan, author of Half-Blood Blues.

But in order to get these voices heard, we need to reach our goal. With your donation we'll be able to keep our current workshops running, publish the writers in the magazine and produce our annual Voices of the Street literary edition. 

Please make a donation (through Hope in Shadows) today and help ensure these voices are heard across Vancouver. 

Thank you for your support,

Sean Condon
Executive Director

"They say the universe is made of stories, not atoms. 
Within this context, Megaphone's workshops are an indispensable resource for those whose stories must be told, and, of equal importance, must be heard." — Carmen Aguirre
author of Something Fierce Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter. 


Megaphone’s writing workshops are crucial work, offering training and access to voices and stories that affect us all, and that we might otherwise never hear.” — John Valliant, author of The Tiger.
