Special anniversary edition of L’Itinéraire is 100% vendors – literally

 INSP 20 May 2019

To celebrate its anniversary, Montreal street paper L’Itinéraire invited its talented vendors to take charge of the paper for a very special edition. As its name suggests, 100% Vendors is written and designed entirely by vendors. It is the result of three months’ of workshops in which top journalists in Montreal mentored vendors. Editor Josée Panet-Raymond talks to INSP about the project’s future and the importance of getting vendors involved in their street paper. (674 Words) - By Laura Smith
