Real Life Poets

The Real Life Poets Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit community service and mentoring organization focusing on mentoring young adults, encouraging good communication, and oratorical skills using spoken word poetry and the arts. We organize community programs, such as Operation Mustard Seed (OMS) Coats for the Cold, and OMS Annual Community Health Fair, and various workshops in order to fulfill our mission. We have facilitated workshops for The Birmingham C.A.N. Summer program, several within the Better Basics Enrichment Program, including workshops within their four HOPE centers, Jefferson County Library Cooperative’s Word Up student poetry slam workshops, and The Birmingham Mayors office and Department of Youth Services Kiddie Club. Because of the students interest and desire to continue writing and performing outside of the workshops we created a teen open Mic, Flow Tactics, hosted by teen artist the 3rd Saturday of every month.

"...Real Life Poets are heaven sent for my students! I was floored with the amount of poetic expression that they were able to bring out of my middle school students. The kids were engaged and excited, and were left with wanting more!" - Middle School Teacher
