Song evaluation are one of the most valuable ways to improve
our current and future work. Receiving critiques helps us to understand how our
songs are coming across to impartial listeners. Giving feedback to others helps
us develop the skill to better refine our own songs. These workshops are
also a great way to meet potential co-writers. Bring a song on CD, cassette, or
to play live plus 10 copies of your lyric sheet. Lyrics only can also be
critiqued.Sunday, Oct.24, 7:00-10:00pm at Hill Harbison House -

Due to personal reasons, our Adopt-a-Shop pro, Julie Zeitlin,
has resigned her position for the time being. For those of you who submitted
songs for our workshop's compilation CD, I have requested that NSAI select a new
Adopt-a-Shop pro who can listen to the CD and submit it to a publisher for
feedback. I'll make an announcement when the new pro has been
chosen. If, at that time, any of you wish to replace your old song on the
CD with a newer one, let me know, and we'll work something out.
