Gloria Gaither Personally Invites You To Her Songwriting Intensive

Back to News

Due to COVID-19 this year’s Songwriting Intensive has been moved to June 17-20, 2021.

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.

A decade ago I started a weekend 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 we’ve since moved the 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 Songwriting major offered by IWU, we eagerly invite you to this amazing experience of fellowship, interaction with great professional songwriters and intense learning. THE DATES NEXT YEAR ARE JUNE 17-20, 2021.  We are excited to announce Michael W. Smith has confirmed and will join other great clinicians for this incredible weekend.  The number we can accommodate for this intimate creative event is limited so register now.

The Intensive begins with a Thursday evening “Meet the Clinicians” dinner.  Over the next two days attendees will 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 is 12 hours of hands-on learning and interaction!  We also have all meals together, time for sharing with other attendees, two night-sessions on a topic of shared interest, and end with brunch and worship on Sunday morning.

The most common feedback that we have received is “Learned so much! I would have come just for the spiritual refreshment. It was a rich retreat.”

We hope to see you June 17-20, 2021 for a one-of-a-kind weekend!

Because He lives!
