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.
Street papers are one thing the internet cannot squeeze out. Being a street vendor is true community, face to face contact. Street life is not for an electronic zombie! It is a real. It is a raw, and stone cold reality. No bozo computer can simulate the human struggle that a vendor faces on the street.
