LUNCH
We will break for an hour-and-a-half for lunch each day. There is a variety of restaurants within walking distance or a short drive from the hotel.

PRESENTING A SONG ON SATURDAY
Saturday after lunch it is the auditors turn to get feedback on one song from the other writers attending.  You can play live or bring a demo. If you plan to play a demo, please email an MP3 of it to me. If you have it on your phone or laptop, that works too. The room is small and we will not have a PA system.

When giving feedback it helps to be able to see the lyrics, so please bring 25 copies of the song you plan to play. Let Barbara know if you need help printing your lyrics.

WRAP PARTY

7 pm at my house. Friends and family welcome. I will provide pizza and some soft drinks. Bring anything else you’d like to eat or drink. And bring guitars ’cause sharing songs is one of the best parts. I have a small keyboard I am happy to set up.
