Hello to all songwriters, worship leaders, and those
responsible for choosing and evaluating songs!
This is Gloria Gaither. Much of my creative energies have been spent writing lyrics mostly to the music my husband Bill has composed over the last half century. We have also recorded hundreds of songs and been responsible for helping to choose well-written songs for others to record. Needless to say, we are passionate about helping a new generation of aspiring writers, artists, and worship leaders to write, or at least to choose songs of substance to give inspiration and direction to their audiences in every genre of music.
Almost a decade ago I started a three day Songwriting Intensive to help writers at all stages of expertise to improve their craft. Bill and I welcomed songwriters to our studio and campus for the first several years, but last year we moved this Intensive to the beautiful campus of Indiana Wesleyan University to expand the learning facilities and better create an artistic community of learners during these days.
Together with those involved in the new major offered by IWU, we eagerly invite you to this amazing experience of fellowship, interaction with great professional songwriters, and intense learning. THE DATES THIS YEAR ARE JUNE 4-7. The number we can accommodate for this intimate creative week-end is limited, so we hope you will be among the first to secure your place by registering early.
Each year attendees get a full three hours of learning from each of four professional songwriters from different genres, each of whom come at their craft in different and unique ways. That’s 12 hours of hands-on learning and interaction!
We also have all of our meals together, time for sharing with other attendees, two night sessions on a topic of shared interest, and a worship together on Sunday morning before heading home. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
The single most often comment we have received is “Learned so much! But I would have come just for the spiritual refreshment. It was a rich retreat.”
We hope to see you this June for a one-of-a-kind week-end!
Because He lives!
