Join singer-songwriter Lou Mclean for a 2 hour song-writing workshop, where the focus will be on individual process, building confidence & getting on with writing songs. Suitable for all levels.

Women only event

Join singer-songwriter Lou Mclean as she tells you all she knows about opening up and writing from the heart. The workshop is aimed at all women, from complete beginners to recording artists. The workshop will focus on DIY songwriting, and exploring individual creativity, with a look at some of the problems women face when it comes to creative expression.

The aim is to help understand some of the hurdles we might face in our journey to be creative, how to overcome our fears and to write some songs! We will work individually, and participants can expect a small and intimate group, with lots of opportunity for 1 to 1 attention. So be audacious and get ready to write and have fun in a supportive atmosphere and you’ll be sure to go away with at least the beginnings of a song!  You're welcome to bring an acoustic instrument if you play one.

2:45pm - 4:45pm

About Audacious Women Festival

The Audacious Women Festival is your chance to break down personal, political or institutional barriers, and to celebrate audacious women everywhere.  This is more than a women's festival – we celebrate Audacious Women - women who are bold and courageous, who have flaunted convention, taken risks and done audacious acts. Women who move outside their comfort zone, face their inner demons and do what they always wished they dared.

Wherever you are, we’re here to encourage you to do your own audacious act. Break convention. Get outside your comfort zone. Be adventurous. Do a charity parachute jump, throw some bricks through the glass ceiling, or organise a protest march. Anything that will make a positive difference to you or to the world.
