I was recently asked to submit an opinion piece to Megaphone Magazine, which has now been published in their latest issue.
Megaphone comes out every two weeks and is published by the Street Corner Media Foundation (a registered non-profit). It’s actually a very special publication in that it enables those who are homeless or have low-incomes to take up an enterprise as a distributor of the street paper. These vendors purchase Megaphone directly from the publisher and then take to the streets to sell issues to the public, by donation. The vendors then keep 100% of the funds from these transactions.
They have profiles of their vendors online, including where you can meet up with them to grab your copy – from Broadway down to Granville Island and many places in between. You can pick up the latest issue #29 from any of these vendors around town.
