CLASSES + LECTURES
Gifts of a Wordsmith Workshop
December 3, 2013 - December 2, 2014
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's second floor 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. 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.
