What We Do


Our Northwest Arkansas Chapter

Our chapter was founded in October of 2019. We normally meet at The Crossing (in the lower back half of First Christian Church in Harrison, AR) from 1pm to 3pm on the second Sunday of every Month.  Meetings are always free to members of NSAI. Visitors are welcome to attend 2 meetings free, and then are asked to pay $15/meeting or join NSAI (join right here!).

Due to the current covid-19 crisis, all meetings are online until further notice. Meetings are usually either on a Tuesday at 7pm or a Saturday at 2pm.

During meetings, the first 30 to 60 minutes is spent going over some instruction on songwriting tips, current trends, any any material NSAI has sent us to use. The rest of the time is spent listening to songs from visitors and giving feedback based on NSAI evaluation guidelines. Visitors are always welcome to play a song or perform it live, but songs must be registered in advance. You are not required to bring a song in order to attend a meeting!

We welcome all experience levels and there is always something for everyone. Whether you are a professional writer looking for more opportunities to have your songs pitched and published, or you’re a brand new writer just looking to get started… we’re here to help!

Meetings are very relaxed, informal, and always fun! We’d love for you to join us! Register for the next event here!
