That’s a wrap on our 17th annual #songwriting workshop! Thank you!!!
Our very own executive director @kerentay putting a melody to our girls’ lyrics at today’s #songwriting workshop!
Songwriters @TheRealLEvans and @favoritesongacademy give great advice: “Choose words that taste good in your mouth,” and “If you get stuck, ask yourself what you would say if you were speaking to a friend.” #songwriting #writingtips #writegirlla
The gardens offer plenty of writing inspiration: names of plants, overheard conversations, and lots of metaphors - from deep roots with strong foundations to cacti that can’t be touched because of their prickles! #songwriting #writingtips #writegirlla
Never underestimate the power of a girl and her pen!
