The next Pacific Songwriting Camp happens January 25-29, 2018 in Cambria, CA. It is a songwriter’s dream for all levels, newcomers to experts. Whether you want to explore songwriting for the first time or are a seasoned singer/songwriter, immerse yourself in all aspects of the songwriting craft. Students and instructors make music together and learn together. The camp includes four days of lodging, all classes and activities, three hot, delicious meals a day (with vegetarian and vegan options), from Thursday evening to Monday morning. Take workshops and classes that interest you, or write under a tree. Focus on your musical, lyrical, or performance skills. Perform at night at “Coffeehouse” in front of a safe and supportive audience, and join in on the late night song circles. The venue is a beautiful 13 acre retreat center on the California coast, perfectly spaced between LA and SF. This camp was inspired by “SummerSongs”, intimate songwriting gatherings that have spawned countless songs and friendships. This camp is inspired by our beloved friend, singer-songwriter and teacher Penny Nichols; her spirit and legacy continues here, creating community through music and song.
