Being able to tell the stories is very important. Some of our vendors are also writers. Many of the writers have never been published before, and it is empowering for them to see their stories in print. We also have more professional writers as well – Allan Sheppard is a retired magazine writer!. John Zapantis wrote for other Edmonton publications, and Joanne Benger is the published author of A Farm Wife’s Almanac.
If you have a story or grievance to relate, contact Alberta Street News. We were the first to write about the Sweat Box Incident, then the story was picked up by lawyer Tom Engel and went form there.
