Megaphone's writing workshops give a voice to people who experience poverty in Vancouver. The free workshops are run in treatment centres, shelters, social housing buildings and a university.

Many of the stories from the workshops are published in Megaphone, helping raise awareness about important social issues in our city.

"I like to share what I go through as an Aboriginal with addiction issues and how I deal with it," says Neil Benson, who participates at Megaphone's workshop at the Drug Users Resource Centre. 

"Being part of Megaphone's writing workshops gives me guidance," he says. "Getting published in the magazine makes me feel acknowledged."

Help Megaphone reach its goal by making a donation here. Your donation means we can continue to run the workshops, compensate the writers, and publish their stories in the magazine. 

Thank you for giving people a voice.


Sean Condon
Executive Director
