Songwriting Workshop: Composing our Migration Stories


Sat, Mar 24, 2018
1:00 to 4:00

Registration required.

There are many ways to tell a story. Have you ever tried putting it into song? Inspired by Exit West, we’ll explore the idea of migration using songwriting tools — metaphor, rhyme, meter and word play. Whether you have songwriting experience, and even if you haven’t read the book, come try your hand at a craft as old as storytelling itself. Bring a notebook and your instrument if you like, though neither is necessary to participate. Led by award-winning singer-songwriters and music educators Wes Weddell and Avery Hill.

For ages 14 and up.

Join us for Everybody Reads, Multnomah County Library’s annual community reading project.
