All levels are welcome – seasoned vets as well as those just dipping their toes into the songwriting pool for the first time. Darden has a hands-on approach that encourages songwriters to take risks, be brave, and dig deep. Writing is a part of this workshop, and participants will emerge with new ideas and new song starts. The group will quickly form into a supportive creative environment; friendships will be made, bonds formed, and new work will rise from the prompts. Methods and encouragement provided in this 1-day (5 hr) session.
