Award-winning poet and community activist John Paul Taylor will lead a free adult poetry workshop on Tuesday, November 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the downtown Birmingham Public Library, 2100 Park Place. Gifts of a Wordsmith will take place on the library's second floor in the Story Castle. The topic for the November 6th session will be “How to Organize Your Writing Life," focusing on a book called Six-Figure Freelancing: The Writer's Guide to Making More Money by Kelly James-Enger. The workshop will also deal with how to find work as a freelance writer.
