Some Information

George Wynn, a native San Franciscan, has been writing for the street papers of North America for over seven years.  In 1997, he won first prize in the Boston street paper Spare Change's essay writing contest.  His first book, The Gift:Tenderloin Poems was published in 2002.

Elizabeth McCracken, Author of The Giant's House says, "George Wynn writes with toughness, sympathy, and great  humor about difficult things and dire situations, and wonderfully about the redeeming qualities of literature and human kindness.  He makes invisible people visible and throws likgh in the darkest of places."
