HOW SONGATHON WORKS
YOU'LL BE ASSIGNED TO A GROUP WITH 2 OTHER TALENTED SONGWRITERS - We curate each co-writing group based on experience and writing style, and you’ll have a room at the venue to write in all weekend (equipped with an electric keyboard!).
YOU'LL BE GIVEN A WRITING PROMPT - Every co-writing group at Songathon will be writing a song based on the same prompt. Be creative with it, and make sure your song stands out!
24-HOURS LATER, YOU'LL PRESENT YOUR SONG TO A LIVE AUDIENCE - A preliminary judging panel will determine which of the groups will be invited to perform their song at the Songathon Finale, where a live audience will vote on their favorite.
