The Stars and Wishes Ireland Songwriting Workshops were started in June 2009 on foot of an IMRO Songwriting retreat in the February of that year. The aim of these workshops is for participants to present their songs (preferrably works in progress) for the group itself to critique, for the purpose of learning and improving the craft of songwriting in a positive constructive way. Participants must bring 2 songs for critique by the rest of the group, using the ‘Stars and Wishes’ method, which will be outlined at the very beginning of the day. Participants must remain for the entire workshop. Songs will be submitted on the day either by CD, or participants should bring their own guitar / keyboard to present their song. Lyrics of the 2 songs should be sent to moc.liamg@dnalerisehsiwdnasrats by confirmed participants as word or .pdf formats, or else participants can bring their lyrics on memory stick / A4 pages on the day for viewing by others within the group, in order to get the most from the feedback.
