Voices of the Street

For bold, creative writing from voices often silenced, be sure to pick up your copy of Voices of the Street from a vendor this spring.

Each year, Voices of the Street offers a collection of poems, stories, essays and creative writing by Megaphone vendors and other writers marginalized by poverty and homelessness, many of whom have participated in Megaphone’s writing workshops.

Voices of the Street is sold on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria by Megaphone's low-income vendors. Vendors buy each book for $5 and sell them for $10, keeping the profit.

Megaphone has been publishing Voices of the Street since 2012. Start your own collection today with a visit to your local vendor or by purchasing a copy online here.

    I bought " Aspirations, voices of the street 2019" from a vendor in Victoria. I am enjoying the poetry. One particular poem that stands out for me, spoke deeply to my heart as I try to decide where to go from here is Fhead’s contribution, “Appropriate Behaviour”.
