Songwriting Workshop

The Songwriting Workshop is an opportunity to turn the story in your head into the song on your lips in an immersive experience with two master songwriters.

Past workshops

a song runs through it

Elk River Arts and Lectures presented award-winning songwriters and acclaimed recording artists, John Lowell and Joe Newberry, to share the art of songwriting in an intimate and immersive two-night workshop in October 2022.


“Thank you for putting on a great 2 day songwriting workshop. I hope that there will be more in the future. It was relaxed and very informative with a wonderful performance by the presenters John Lowell and Joe Newberry to wrap up the evening !”

—Workshop student Harry Eibert
