The Portland Songwriter Association hosts an open forum of songwriters dedicated to helping each other write great songs.The workshop was created to provide songwriters an opportunity to present their latest works in progress, and have those songs critiqued by other songwriters.

Songwriters Workshop
3rd Saturday of the month
at 11:00 am

November Workshop Cancelled
We will resume in December

Buffalo Gap
6835 S.W. Macadam Avenue
Portland, OR


Location: Buffalo Gap workshop@portlandsongwriters.org.

Guidelines for the Workshops:

1. Bring at least 15 lyric sheets and type lyrics exactly as they appear on CD or tape. You may perform your song live, if you prefer. (If you bring a tape, que it to the beginning of the song.)

2. Avoid lengthy intros and instrumental solos. Because time is short at the workshops, we ask that your song be no longer than 3 minutes. Feel free to omit solos, intros, and outros.

3. Focus your feedback on the lyrics and melody of the song. (Production comments may be noted on the lyric sheet and returned to the writer)

4. Be constructive, helpful, friendly, instructional in your critique of others' songs. A positive and encouraging atmosphere makes these workshops fun for everyone. Be honest, be considerate. Everyone is encouraged to speak.

5. Be open-minded to the feedback you receive from others. The goal is to help make everyone's songs that much better.
