How To Write a Song That Matters with Dar Williams

Dar is celebrating the release of her new book “How to Write a Song that Matters” with an afternoon songwriting workshop. Dar will discuss the insights gleaned from ten years of retreat leading and deconstruct one of her songs. During a break, we will pull student names out of a hat. Those students can present songs that you are working on (ideally where "the ink is still wet" and you'd like some helpful feedback). We’ll probably have time for five or six songs, plus some time to recap and talk about how to keep inspiring ourselves, our peers, and our communities, musical and otherwise. And P.S., you don’t have to submit a song if you’d just like to observe!
