    SAW Virtual Second Saturday Songwriters' Toolbox w Christie Chirinos 

    In the tradition of our years of Saturday songwriting toolboxes, join your host, Christie Chirinos, for a refreshing, frank and helpful look at where your songs are now and how they might be improved.

    Bring your finished, almost finished and just started songs to a session with other songwriters. You will perform your song for the group from your end and receive a kind but thorough look at how others hear your work. 

    Please have the lyrics of your song ready (in a format that works for a screen share) or submit it beforehand to the moderator (email address will be provided to registrants) so others can follow along.

    Christie and your fellow songwriters will bring you into the community of songwriting and give your process some new perspectives.

    Register to get the Zoom info.

Songwriters' Association of Washington is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
