Title: Generative Songwriting Workshop
Description: This workshop uses the Amherst Writers & Artists method to facilitate writing of lyrics, melodies, or both. Participants write to prompts and are invited to share what they’ve written. We respond to each other’s work, focusing on what is strong about the writing and what stays with us. Lauren S. H. Scantlebury is a writer, musician, and community artist in Anchorage, Alaska. She released her debut album, Emerging, in 2020.
