Is a tune constantly playing in your head? Are you always listening to music? Do you wish you could write your own songs, like your favorite artists? At SummerWrite you can! Professional songwriters, musicians, and poets will lead you through the creative process of writing your own song. You will participate in poetry and songwriting workshops, learning to turn poetry into lyrics, and guest musicians and songwriters will enhance your experience. By the end of three days, each student will have at least one set of polished lyrics. The final two days will be spent putting your lyrics to music, rehearsing, and recording. No previous experience with music is necessary. Accommodations will be made for writers who are not singers.
