Songwriting Workshop – July

Tuesday, July 24
6:15 pm – 8:15 pm

Our songwriting workshop is a terrific gathering of like-minded writers, along with mentor Jud Caswell, who is here to help you shape your work into something polished and wonderful.

Jud starts each session with a short discussion of some of the elements of songwriting craft, then moves right on to sharing songs. Jud’s feedback is focused on questions or concerns raised by the songwriter, with group discussion focused on issues of craft and technique.

Participants should bring a song that is “in process” for feedback and support, along with 10 copies of lyrics to share. We’ll have a sign-up sheet when you get here and will have time each night to share 6 or 7 songs. Come a little early if you want to make sure to get on the list!

The goal of the workshop is to provide a safe place for songwriters to grow their ability. Songwriters of all levels and abilities are welcome! This class is a lot of fun. We hope you’ll join us this summer to learn and to be inspired by others in the class.

Democracy Café – July

Tuesday, July 10
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This month, as we celebrate the independence of our country, let’s take a deep dive into the news and talk about the role of the United States, as a powerful democracy, on global issues.

  • What is our obligation to lead?
  • How does our changing democracy affect the global balance of power?
  • How are democratic institutions changing around the world?

Please join us for another thoughtful and important discussion. Bring your thoughts, questions, and ideas to share, learn, and connect!

Good News!



We will be open until 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays all summer long.

No more summer hours!

Come see us!
