Beginning the end of homelessness


Homeless people writing out of the margins

StreetWrites is a workshop for homeless and low-income writers which I started in 1995, and which has been sponsored by Real Change since 1997. In that seven years we've had a lot of folks do a lot of writing, and I've put up pages for many of them -- not all, because I couldn't keep up, but a lot of pages. There is no longer room on the Real Change domain for the older pages, but I don't want to see them lost -- so here they are.

These 21 people aren't all those to come through StreetWrites, by any means: that's more like 600. These are just the ones that sat down with me long enough to work out a web page, or who gave me permission to do it myself. :-)
