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. 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.

The workshops will be held on the following Saturdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Central Library.
