Mining for Songs is an in-person workshop for professional, amateur and wanna-be songwriters looking for some inspiration.

On the surface it's a class on songwriting.

But really?  it's about digging deeper into your personal history, finding your creative voice and expressing yourself with more authenticity and originality.

And really, really?  It's about finding the joy.

What will you get?  

Lunch.  Well yeah, gotta eat, right?

-We will do free writes that I promise will surprise you when you read them back.  You have magic in you that's just waiting to come out!

-We'll also do several descriptive writing exercises that will get you writing more vividly by pulling from all your senses and sense memories.

-We'll do a series of short, fun and interactive exercises and'll write a song.  I promise!

-And at the end of it all you will feel more connected to yourself, your creative spirit and to a community of other writers.  Yay!

10am to 3pm songwriting intensive, light lunch included!

"Monica's workshop got the creative waters flowing again. I'm noticing song lines left and right! She creates a supportive, fun environment and appreciates each artist whereever they are in their development."  Sonya Hunter

"One of the best songwriting classes I have ever taken. The writing exercises and the group sharing and discussion literally became the perfect keys to opening up my creative flow. I haven't been this in touch with myself and who I want to be as an artist in 20 years. Thank you, Monica!"  Diane Ryderwood
