Anyone can attend the seminar. Participants are encouraged to send one song for Steve to listen to. Of the songs submitted, 6-10 will be chosen to be critiqued during the seminar with an emphasis on what we can all learn from the process. One of these writers will be chosen to perform as a guest artist during the round at Douglas Corner on Friday. To submit your song, please send a lyric as well as an mp3 of the song to Phil Goldberg at email@example.com.
