Megaphone Magazine’s special “Community Voices Issue” celebrates voices from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and inner-city communities. This issue will include residents’ articles, poems, stories, artwork and photos, and will focus on the neighbourhood’s positive community elements. This special publication will be launched at a Downtown Eastside community event where contributing authors can present public readings of their work. As part of this special project, Megaphone will hold seven writing workshops for interested contributors with partners PHS Community Services Society and the City of Vancouver.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada.
