"The great thing about Megaphone has always been its emphasis on empathy, solidarity and empowerment over paternalism or pitying condescension. The Writing Workshops are a natural culmination of that philosophy—to be armed with the skills to tell one's own story, in one's own words and style, is among the most profoundly empowering experiences life has to offer."
Megaphone runs a series a writing workshops in treatment centres, social housing buildings and community centres in the Downtown Eastside and downtown Vancouver. Many of the stories and poems from these workshops are published in Megaphone Magazine.
This spring Megaphone needs to raise $10,000 to help fund this program. Please donate $25, $50 or $100 today and help ensure that these voices continue to be heard.
