Good News - HURRY!

Hey Everybody, LOTS OF GOOD NEWS!

1. The INTERLOCHEN OMNI is keeping some post-deadline Durango-rate rooms for us but HURRY! It will sell out! Click on the link to get your rooms!

2. Thanks to Scott Hunt, one of our 2009 Write-With-A-Hit-Maker winners (for "It Gets Me Where I'm Going"), we discovered a problem on our website and some really (good!) old content! Our Audio Archives were not playing! Scott let us know and ultimately we fixed it, but we realized: "hey this is some good sh*t!"

We forget sometimes that not all of you have been around as long as us! Check out Jeffrey Steele's Workshop from 2003! If you are a songwriter, no doubt you know of Jeffrey Steele. Check out this great workshop recorded live at the Expo!

3. WWAHM 2.0 is Coming! We are almost there with a new voting platform, a new alliance with Soundcloud, and more access to YOUR SONGS by those in need of well, YOUR SONGS! If you're not in the supply chain, it doesn't matter how much demand there is...you are out of the picture!

People are discovering new music online every second of every day. It is a big world. Your oyster is huge, thanks to the Internet. Make great music and connect with true fans of your music! They are most assuredly out there waiting to find you! Find them! Find your core audience and you will have a wonderful career.

Thanks NSAI!

NEW! CHECK OUT THE GREAT QUICK TIP SONGWRITING VIDEOS FROM OUR FRIENDS AT NSAI!

Next Durango Nite in Nashville Thursday 09.20.12!

THURSDAY NIGHT 9.20 7:30-11:00PM AT THAT'S COOL!

We're getting ready for our fall October 4-6 Expo! Come on out and play...and help us kick off the fun and excitement of yet another EXPO!

OK songwriters, mrJack here with the lowdown on the 2012-2 Write With A Hit-Maker contest - it's OPEN!

It's only a 30 day contest (ends Sept. 24th!), so act fast. We just ran out of time trying to get three categories to happen again. There are only two categories for this WWAHM but we think you'll see it's another GREAT opportunity to further your career and strengthen your songwriting resume. It's one of the most important aspects of writing in Nashville: everybody needs to WRITE UP...even the best writers!

So here's your chance! We have a great number of testimonials and success stories. Get a piece for yourself!

Also there's a new and improved component to the WWAHM online music library that we have been building. You'll learn about that in the first email after you enter.

Good luck!
