Songwriter Activities

Canadian Songwriter Challenge 2021

Our 2020 event was postponed due to the pandemic.
Applications are now open for our 2021 event, taking place online and in person August 2021. Learn more here. Applications close August 9/21.

Co-writing Rooms

Pre-pandemic, we hosted a monthly, collaborative songwriting series in Regina and Saskatoon for our members.

This ‘event’ is facilitated one Sunday per month (excluding summer months). 3-4 songwriters per city are matched together for a 2-3 hour co-writing session. We are looking for interest from songwriters with interests in all different genres and at various skill levels. We provide a comfy space, snacks and beverages, and a facilitator; you bring the creativity and an open mind! 

The goal is for writers to try writing with people they may not have approached on their own, to build new relationships, gain experience in collaborating and co-writing, and generally advance their craft by stretching themselves in new ways. 

For those who participated in our past Master Classes, songwriting challenges, or Nashville writing rooms, it’s a similar idea. We are open to doing this in any locations around Sask where there is enough interest shown.

This project is currently on hiatus and may resume later in 2021.  

Songwriting Groups Regina and Saskatoon 

There are currently two groups in the province that are operating in affiliation with the Songwriters Association of Canada (SAC). 

Hosted by local singer/songwriters, these groups are a great way to connect more intimately with other songwriters in the community. The time is usually spent working on songwriting skills together and sometimes sharing a song or two. At some dates, a guest songwriter attends to chat about specific topics related to songwriting. 

All genres and skill levels are welcome to attend these free events!
