Poetry Slam Workshops for Teens and Teachers at the Birmingham Public Library
Poets, aspiring poets, and poetry clubs in grades 9-12, and teachers are invited to participate in free spoken word poetry workshops at the Birmingham Public Central Library (BPL) on November 6, December 4 and January 8, 2:00-4:00 p.m. The November and December sessions will be held in the Story Castle on the 2nd floor; the January session will be held in the Arrington Auditorium. If this is your first foray into spoken word poetry, or you’d like to take your skills to the next level, sign up. Each workshop will differ in focus. Planning to participate in the next BPL Word Up! contest? Now is the time to hone your skills. Space is limited. Call 226-3670 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
The Desert Island Supply Company (DISCO), a nonprofit writing program based in Birmingham, and Real Life Poets, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to mentor young adults, encourage good communication, and oratorical skills using spoken word poetry will conduct these free workshops.
