Who is it for: Songwriters

Scots songwriters are offered the chance of joining the UK Songwriting Festival — to be held for the first time in Galloway in August 2012 — for a week of intensive support and tuition.

Bath Spa University will bring their distinguished tutors including Joe Bennett, Boo Hewerdine, Jez Ashurst, Andy White and Ivor Novello-nominated Snow Patrol collaborator Iain Archer, to Scotland for the first time for a five-day intensive songwriting boot camp which will take place at Shennanton House in rural Galloway between August 12th and August 17th 2012. All participants will then, over two gigs in Bladnoch Distillery, showcase what has been achieved with their fresh new songs premiered to an invited audience.

Deadline: Saturday 12th May 2012 at Noon
