Some say that songwriting can’t be taught, but it isn’t true. If you know three chords on the guitar, you can learn to write a song. Maybe they say it because every song is a unique writing experience. You have to find your way every time. You have an idea, a theme, a beginning, even an ending. But the song has its own ideas. It wants to surprise you, move you, lead you to discover it. In this workshop, we will discover your own unique songs, refine them, and perform them. We will experiment with language and form, feed our imaginations with literature and poetry. Whether you are a beginner, a writer of another discipline, or an experienced songwriter who is feeling a little stuck, please join me this summer for four weekly sessions of The Song Knows, a Songwriting Workshop with Lori Carson.
Each four-week session (July and August) will be limited to no more than twelve participants. Two partial scholarships are available for each. If you would like to attend, please introduce yourself. I’d love to know who you are and where you are in your practice—in whatever discipline.
