How to Write Like I Do with John Roderick
John Roderick will explain every single aspect of being a singer/songwriter and recording artist, including, but not limited to:

How to be a musician when you're not that good of a musician.
How to keep writing when everything you write is boring and terrible.
How to completely rewrite songs you thought were finished.
How to maintain some semblance of dignity in a shameful world.
How to find the coconut of an idea in a sea of cliches.
How to, when all else fails, become a colorful personality.

Topics NOT included include:

How to get your demo to Barsuk Records.
How to find a manager.
How to get a major-label recording contract.
How to write a radio hit.

Bio: John Roderick labored in local semi-obscurity for ten years in a succession of good bands that went nowhere.  Undaunted, he kept playing music until he rose to the level of national, and then international semi-obscurity.  As frontman of The Long Winters he has done almost everything you can do in rock music, short of becoming rich and famous. John also considers himself a widely respected journalist, an extensively quoted author and philosopher, a prima ballerina, a cowboy and an astronaut.
