This will be the first in a series of songwriting retreats to be held at a secluded cabin in the woods outside Olympia, WA. We will gather with both fledgling and experienced songwriters to form a container for creative energy, and to practice adding to and drawing from that energy. We recognize creativity as an essential force that flows through all people, and offer this as safe space in which you are invited to stretch your self, to try new things, to connect and collaborate and respond, and to nurture a dynamic balance between independence and interdependence in the birthing of our most fantastic creative selves. We will work to remove creative blockages and build skills to listen to the creative forces in us and around us. We will do this with the help of guided skill building activities as well as providing individual time to work with prompts, use personal methods, and connect with nature as a source, container and collaborator in creativity.

Who is this for?
-open to all levels, styles, abilities
-queer safe space
-gender inclusive
-we will do our best to accommodate chemical sensitivities and food allergies
-unfortunately the cabin is not wheelchair accessible. There are about 15 steps.

Logistics:

Cost:
$300-600 sliding scale, includes three full days and nights and all meals.

Nomy Lamm and Erin Daly have been collaborating on music and dreams for nearly a decade. They’ve toured the country together several times, spreading their vision around the US in the three-piece hybrid-genre band Tricrotic, and on the New Road Home tour with DavEnd. They’ve played at festivals including Homo-a-go-go, Ladyfest, Idapalooza, Camp Trans and Outfest. When not immersed in a ((double hug)), Erin roams the wilds of Washington making medicine with the plants she encounters, and Nomy lives in San Francisco writing stories and teaching people to access their voices.
