FTW/GNB Rough Draft Songwriter Night
Calling all femme, trans, woman, and gender non-binary songwriters -- tonight at The Warming House is for you!

The FTW/GNB Rough Draft Songwriting Circle is an opportunity to workshop original songs with a supportive group of songwriters who identify as femme, trans, woman, or gender non-binary. Bring a song (finished or in progress) that you’re willing to receive feedback on. Each attendee will perform one song for the group, and the group will provide feedback on lyrics, melody, structure, chords, overall feel, tone, and anything else the songwriter would like feedback on. From time to time we will also provide an opportunity for participating in songwriting exercises, prompts, and co-writing sessions.

Rough Draft is a way to workshop songs with others, build community, create, and to give yourself some accountability to keep up with songwriting in a positive and supportive setting. All genres and styles are welcome. Bringing copies of your lyrics to hand out is helpful if you are looking for feedback on lyrics or structure.

The Rough Draft Songwriting Circle will typically include a mix of veteran singer-songwriters with lots of performance experience, brand new artists who may be nervously performing publicly for the first time, and a range of folks in between. We strive for a low-key, low-stakes, affirming, and constructive setting.

Whether you’re a F/T/W/GNB beginner at writing songs or you’ve been doing it for years, if you'd like to improve your songs while building community, Rough Draft is for you! Join us!

The F/T/W/GNB Rough Draft Songwriting Circle is hosted by St. Paul singer/songwriter Victoria Malawey (novvaamusic.com).
