Help BPL Raise $7,000 for the Teen Poetry Initiative in Birmingham
Students perform at BPL's Word Up! 2012
The Birmingham Public Library seeks to raise $7,000 to fund a twelve-month series of poetry writing and performance workshops for teens in the Birmingham metropolitan area.
Your contributions will fund the direct costs of the poetry workshops and will send these young poets to compete on the national and international stage that is "Brave New Voices." BPL's group is honored to be selected as one of the 50 international teams to compete this August in Chicago!
The workshops are facilitated by Real Life Poets. Learn more about this organization by visiting here and support their partnership with BPL by clicking the donate button below. Every dollar will help us reach our goal. Thank you for your support!
The program will culminate in several outstanding opportunities for local student-poets.
This campaign supports an already popular workshop that has been enriching the lives of Birmingham youth for the last two years. Check out some clips of our young participants performing their original spoken word pieces .
