The Birmingham Public Library announces that after a brief hiatus, its popular Gifts of the Wordsmith workshops will again welcome poets of all ages, experience, and levels of confidence. Renamed “Wordsmiths,” the workshops will offer informal, welcoming programs for poets to improve their writing and enjoy one another’s poetry.
Wordsmiths poetry workshops are designed for poets to participate as much or as little as they wish. While workshop leaders choose the program, all will include opportunities for poets to share their work with their peers and, if they wish, receive feedback and suggestions. Do bring copies of your poems, but do not feel that you must hand them out or invite comments. Feel free to read . . . or just listen and enjoy!
Participants will hone their lyrical skills with the help of instructors Tina Mozelle Braziel, Alicia Clavell, and Barry Marks. “The creative atmosphere and spirit of community that the Birmingham Public Library provides is the perfect place for workshop participants from all levels to work on their writing in a safe, friendly environment,” Clavell said.
For more information, contact Carrie Campbell, Arts, Literature, and Sports Department at the Central Library, at 205-226-3670 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
