Meet & Make: Songsmiths

Support us

Jan 11, 2019 All day

A jam session/open workspace where poets and composers come together to create songs in a pressure-free environment. We hope to foster inventive and innovative storytelling and songwriting, and to inspire future collaboration among the artists gathered from across various communities.

The Musical Theatre Factory & Poetic Theater Productions are now accepting applications from composers and poets to participate in the Meet & Make: Songsmiths lab taking place Sunday January 27th from 1-5PM.

Over the course of that time, all artists (10 composers, 10 poets) will participate in 2 separate pairings with a new collaborator. Each pairing will result in an original song. At the end of the lab, artists will have an opportunity to share the work they’ve made with their fellow lab members. Pianos will be on the premises but with a large group, there will be limited access. We strongly encourage composers who work with other instruments to bring their instruments with them.

  • bass
  • bongos
  • cajón
  • computers
  • guitars
  • harmonicas
  • loop machines
  • ukuleles
  • violins
  • + other instruments

Musical Theatre Factory and Poetic Theater Productions have collaborated for three years on the annual Poetic Lyricism showcase in the Poetic License Festival at the Wild Project. Work created or inspired during this lab will be given priority in being included in the annual Poetic Lyricism Showcase.

To apply: Complete the application form below before January 11th, 2019. We will announce workshop participants on January 15th, 2019.
