Regional Writers Group

Hosted by local singer/songwriters, these groups are a great way to connect more intimately with other S.A.C. members in your community.  The time is usually spent working on songwriting skills together and sometimes sharing a song or two.

Please see Events Listing using "Regional Writers Group" filter to find a RWG in your area. The S.A.C. is not currently accepting applications for new Regional Writers Groups in Canada.

Please email the coordinator listed below for the date & time of the next meeting or check our events page.  We encourage you to join the Facebook Group for each of these groups.
