    Award-winning poet and community activist John Paul Taylor will lead free adult poetry workshops on the first Tuesday of every month, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at the Central Library. "Gifts of a Wordsmith" will take place on the library's second floor in the Story Castle.

    The class will cover how to get your thoughts down on paper, overcoming writer's block, copyright issues, self-publishing, how to perform, and more. The Friends of the Birmingham Public Library will fund the workshops.

    Taylor is one of the founders of Real Life Poets, a nonprofit creative writing program based in Birmingham. This summer he presented two workshops as part of BPL's adult summer reading program. Participants enjoyed the adult classes so much that they wanted to see them continue.

    Taylor also teaches a youth poetry class on the first Saturday of every month, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, at the Central Library.

    For more information on the adult poetry class, contact Taylor at johnpaul@reallifepoets.org or at The Real Life Poets website:  www.reallifepoets.org.
