You have to be crazy to be a writer. Fortunately, I’m well-qualified. When you’re a freelance writer, single, and mentally disordered, homelessness is an occupational hazard.Coincidentally (or maybe not), I recently wandered into a paid gig writing for InvisiblePeople.tvabout my “lived experience” as a bipolar, chronically homeless person - and staff monitor in a homeless shelter. InvisiblePeople is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to disrupting the destructive stereotypes of homeless people.The stories and rants I’m writing are designed to show that homelessness is way more widespread than just the lost souls - the Invisible People - you pretend you don’t see on the streets. We walk among you. We’re the hidden homeless people you see every day. We have jobs, families community commitments - and we’re homeless, but we keep that part secret. We live illegally in tents, cars, yurts, garages,outbuildings, trailers and RVs … because there is no damn affordable housing.Below are links to the stories I’m writing for Invisible People. I will add links as stories are published.
