Vancouver author Michael Christie (who's book of short stories, Beggar's Garden, won the 2011 City of Vancouver Book Award) on why Megaphone's writing workshop project is so important to the city:
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.
