    Event description

    The Songwriters Roundtable is a deep dive into the art of the singer-songwriter. A warm and welcoming space to discover creative tools, and have fun with interactive activities and writing exercises that will inspire your songwriting. With lots of permission to play, we’ll delve into storytelling through description and observation, explore song structures and the magic of metaphor, understand point of view and rhyme; and much more... 

    Who should attend?
    The Songwriters Roundtable is for adults and teens brand new to songwriting, seasoned songwriters feeling a little stuck or uninspired, and for all those wanting tools to improve their lyric writing.

    What do I need to bring?
    Bring a notebook, pen, and your instrument. 

    About the monthly gatherings
    Each monthly meetup has a different focus from the world of lyric writing and emotive storytelling. Sessions will build on skills and principles from previous months, but you're totally welcome to drop into any session. 

    The May Songwriters Roundtable is about developing story ideas for your songs because...  it's official. Humans LOVE stories! We've been telling them and listening to them since like, forever. And what is a song but a story sung in the space of a few magical minutes? Stories can heal. Stories can inspire. Maybe stories can even change the world.
    Telling a good story using lyrics and music is a vital skill for songwriters but knowing where to begin the stories you want to tell can be tricky. There are layers and threads to stories that can lead in many different directions. Who is telling the story? To whom are they speaking? Why are they telling the story in the first place? We'll also look at perspective and point of view, the hero's journey, and story arcs and narratives that deepen throughout a song to create emotive impact and connect with the heart of the listener.
