Love. Your. Lyrics.
LA Writers Workshops with Melaena Cadiz & Bobby Apperson
This two-week workshop is dedicated to songwriting from each of our unique perspectives and experiences in the world. By diving deeply into our own stories we'll surface with songs that are as unique as they are personal and universal.
In a nurturing, supportive and playful small group we will:
Share completed songs and songs in progress and get feedback
Work on honing specificity, creating powerful visuals, and storytelling by showing, not telling
Experiment with forms: Object songs, Story songs, Conversation/stream of consciousness
Create a network for the opportunity for support, community, & accountability
COURSE B | TBD! In-depth dive into all aspects your songs.

A B O U T | MELAENA CADIZ
While not spinning yarns Melaena helps others do the same, coaching both songwriting & guitar in Los Angeles. NPR: "Like an earthbound Joanna Newsom, Cadiz has a voice that grabs you within seconds." VOGUE: "A meandering mix of country and folk that evokes the most isolated areas of the country and the people who call those places home.” @melaenacadiz
