What We Do


We started in October of 2019, but stopped meeting during the Covid-19 crisis.  We are officially opening again in January 2024!

Workshops/Showcases are at George Guitars in Harrison, Arkansas. Only 24 spots available each week! You are welcome to join in person or online via Zoom!

During the workshop, we do instruction and tips from 3pm to 5pm, take a break (most choose to go to dinner somewhere on their own or with others from the group), and then from 6:30pm to 8:30pm we will host an open mic for our participants. Those wanting to perform one of their original songs will be able to do so at that time. You are also welcome to play one of your pre-recorded songs. We will discuss the songs that are being performed and offer tips and insights. You are not required to bring a song in order to attend a workshop!

We also offer opportunities for discounted song critique sessions with Nashville pros, publisher pitch sessions, and other opportunities to get your music heard. We also encourage all members to join NSAI. They are an invaluable resource to all songwriters, and we highly recommend joining!

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!

Workshops are very relaxed, informal, and always fun! Each session is $50.

We can only take 24 people due to limited time and seating. You are also welcome to attend via Zoom! We do our best to let everyone play one song (live or pre-recorded) if they choose to do so.

Every month we’ll start a new theme/topic, but you’re welcome to jump in during any session. You’re never required to attend all classes in a month. We’d love for you to join us! Register for the next event here!
