Songwriting Series with Anastacia-Reneé
Rain City Rock Camp is thrilled to host Anastacia-Reneé for a six-week long Songwriting Series! Learn different ways to approach new writing projects, explore thought-provoking prompts and ideas, and build community workshopping with other songwriters. Come away with a completed piece of work that you present at the end of the series, and new tools for continuing to create after the series finishes!
*This workshop is for participants 18 years and older
Full Workshop Description:
You’ve Got Bars! In this 6-week songwriting series you’ll be in close communication joy, anger, love, grief and even wisdom from the child within while we ground ourselves in making music that gives us hope, tells a story, dismantles oppression or simply twerks at your heartstrings. We’ll write lyrics through the lens of poetry prompts and poetic devices and we will joyfully write a manifesto as we individually hone our crafts towards individual pieces. On the last day of class (June 15th) you will share one song you’ve been working on and present your music infused manifesto.
Date and Time: Wednesdays, 6-8 PM | May 11, May 18, May 25, June 1, June 8, June 15
Location: Each session will take place in RCRC’s new Umbrella space. This dynamic new space features original artwork by youth rock camp participants, and access to instruments and equipment to bring your song to life.
Address: 302 19th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122
Cost of Attendance: The $250 registration fee goes directly to the workshop facilitator and program supplies. Please reach out to us directly to discuss options to pay in installments- we would love to make this possible for you! [email protected]
