StreetWise hosts a writing workshop for StreetWise participants to learn, practice and strengthen their compositional skills. Every Monday, Volunteer Marcie Bearman leads the workshop, which has grown quite popular. The following essay was written during the workshop in honor of Street Paper Vendor Week 2013.
The paper helps me to help myself. It is a way of helping me support myself financially. It helped me live in an apartment where I could not have afforded to live. It is important for everyone to try to support themselves. The paper is also important because it gives the readers information about the communities and concerns in their own and nearby neighborhoods.
