Wordsmiths: Poetry Workshop for Adults
Birmingham Public Library, Saturday, November 17 at 3:30pm
A workshop 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. Cost: Free and open to the public. Room: First Floor Conference Room. 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.
