About this Event

Sisters Songworks 4.0: An Intimate VIRTUAL Writing Retreat

Songworks 4.0/ April 9-11, 2021: Tom Prasada-Rao plus one more instructor (TBA), will serve as the core instructors, with Martyn Joseph teaching a masterclass from Wales in the UK. Retreat facilitated by Beth Wood.

Sisters Songworks is an intimate and intensive virtual writing retreat celebrating and exploring the art of songwriting in community. The weekend workshop will bring in noted songwriters and poets, facilitated by Beth Wood among other instructors to delve into the magic of songwriting. Sisters Songworks is an opportunity to learn from professional singer-songwriters, connect with others who share a love of songwriting and poetry, share your work in a non-performance focused setting, and engage in creativity in a supportive environment.

Each weekend can accommodate a maximum of 22 participants, divided into smaller groups for workshop sessions.

Each weekend retreat will include small group workshops, master class, a song circle, opportunities for sharing, an instructor concert, Q & A with instructors, time for reflection, and plenty of stretch/dance party breaks to keep our blood flowing.

Other dates include...

Songworks 2.0/ Feb 5-7, 2021: North Carolina Songwriter Jonathan Byrd and the SFF veteran teaching artist Ellis, with a masterclass offered by award-winning songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman. Go here to register for this weekend - https://songworks2.eventbrite.com
