SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24TH NSAI SUNDAY SONGSWAP 4:00pm to 6:00pm, followed by Sunday Night Open Mic

Every 4th Sunday at JP Hops House

This is not a formal meeting, program, showcase or critique format- just writers hanging out with other writers, giving and getting some inspiration. We will do a “song circle” style of gathering, for writers to try out a new song or two and get feedback from fellow writers. You do not have to be a member of NSAI to attend or participate. Our facilitators alternate month-to-month, and include NSAI members Tina Allen, Leslie Krafka and Mitch Tiffin. For more information email Tina Allen at ladyti1@comcast.net
