STORYTELLING: Love. Your. Lyrics.
LA Writers Workshops with Melaena Cadiz & Bobby Apperson
Our February lyric series focused on Object-centered songs. March 30 we look at Storytelling.
This series is for songwriting from each of our unique perspectives and experiences. By diving deeply into our own stories we’ll surface with songs that are as unique as they are personal and universal.
Nurturing, supportive, and playful small group
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 Story songs and conversation/stream of consciousness, with examples
Create a network for the opportunity for support, community, & accountability

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
