Jess Bailey of Fables will present a workshop on songwriting including tips for beginners, Q&A for all levels and song critiques. Coming from a background of visual arts, Jess will impart techniques to write songs that paint a picture - bring lyrics of a song to workshop or start fresh

Chaired by Richard Dingwall from the Wilding Pines, a group of songwriters including Anu Grace, Lisa Tui, Mark LeMaire and Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard (from Looking for Alaska) perform examples of their work and discuss their craft. Learn from those creating their own music with insights into how they work when they are composing.
