I'm new to songwriting and would like to create an environment where we can learn more about this mysterious process. Beginners and advanced writers/musicians welcome! I've taken writing, acting, and songwriting classes, and in that spirit hope to facilitate a safe environment where we can discuss and perform—offering support and constructive feedback. I also hope to occasionally bring in guest speakers (professional songwriting instructors/performers). One book that I'm reading at the moment which is great is called "Writing Better Lyrics" by Pat Pattison. It would be fun to do some group exercises from that book as well as generate a list of other books for our inspiration. I hope you can join us! Thanks!
