Event description
Established Songwriters Mentoring Aspiring Songwriters

About this event

Host by local songwriter Kwiat, these monthly songwriter's circle sessions are a great way to connect more intimately with other emerging songwriters in your community. Each session features an established songwriter from various backgrounds to talk about the music industry and give insight into their songwriting experience and process. The time is spent working on songwriting skills together and sharing a song or two by each participant.

The series was created to fill a visible need for stronger creative development opportunities or programming for local songwriters and begin establishing an effective and notable songwriting community in Winnipeg, Manitoba. With the move to an online setting, the group is open to any songwriter interested in sharing a song for critique, and need not be based in Manitoba. Space is limited.

Partnered with The Songwriter’s Association of Canada.
