BEFORE THE EVENT
We can help you connect with other female/non-binary songwriters and producers. Join our Facebook community or use the hashtag #femalesongwritersday.
You set up your own songwriting sessions. For practical reasons there are no official sessions organized. It’s on your own terms and you decide together with your writing partners what your commitments will be.

We will offer seminars to inspire and help you create fantastic songs. Participate in any activity we will offer during the 24 hours! Connect with others and share behind the scenes with the hashtag #femalesongwritersday and most importantly – have fun!
AFTER THE EVENT
We’ll give you a week to finish your song. When ready, registered and secured you will be able to send it to us, if you feel like it.
Then you’ll be able to sign it up for feedback from a hand picked bunch of talented songwriters and producers, or have your song showcased in a digital listening party. Who knows, maybe we’ll end up throwing the biggest listening party ever?
Everything related to Female Songwriters Day is completely free of charge! We want to help you connect and meet new friends in music, develop your skills and and have fun with other songwriters and producers. Welcome to join!
Coming next week!
