Real Life Poets

We organize community programs, such as Operation Mustard Seed (OMS) Coats for the Cold, and OMS Annual Community Health Fair, and various workshops in order to fulfill our mission. We have facilitated workshops for The Birmingham C.A.N. Summer program, several within the Better Basics Enrichment Program, including workshops within their four HOPE centers, Jefferson County Library Cooperative’s Word Up student poetry slam workshops, and The Birmingham Mayors office and Division of Youth Services Kiddie Club. Because of the students interest and desire to continue writing and performing outside of the workshops we created a teen open Mic, Flow Tactics, hosted by teen artist the 3rd Saturday of every month. Real Life Poets Inc. and its members have formed several noteworthy alliances and partnerships. The organization is a member of the Central Alabama Mentors Coalition (CAMC), and a vendor for Jefferson County Department of Human Resources’ Independent Living Program. Several members are adult literacy tutors for Pro-Literacy America, mentors for Birmingham Department of Human Resources, and are also on the Boards of Dessert Island Supply Company (DISCO); Hip-Hop is Music Foundation (HHIM), and the Museum of Urban Arts (MUA). We have also partnered with UAB’s Anthro-Teach envir
