Each month you'll receive writing assignments and publisher feedback. If you nail your assignments, you’ll have the opportunity to get songs signed and pitched by one of the publishers.

We have writers and artists from all over the world in these groups. So, it’s a great place to meet talented co-writers and get your songs heard. Limited spots.
