Songwriting Workshop: Trust the Song
Sunday, November 7
10 am - 3 pm

Songs come to all of us. In this workshop we'll explore ways to hear more of the songs that arrive, follow where the songs lead, and deepen trust in the songs and in ourselves to give them voice. We'll do a lot of writing with optional sharing, and discuss what helps and what gets in the way of songs being written.

Participants will come away with fresh inspiration and tools for starting and finishing songs.

We'll meet live online 10 am - 3 pm Pacific standard time, with an hour break for lunch. All levels of experience welcome. $80.

Please contact me with any questions or for more information.
