Join Cuckoo Young [SONG] Writers!

Our Sunderland Cuckoo Young Writers group is becoming our first Cuckoo Young [SONG] Writers group! Working with songwriters Martin Longstaff (AKA The Lake Poets) and Natasha Haws, the group will meet weekly on a Saturday, 11am-1pm, at Pop Recs Ltd from 9 January 2016.

We’re looking for budding songwriters aged 12-19 of all abilities, from musicians who want to find out more about writing lyrics or writers who wants to set their words to music. You don’t have to be able to play an instrument to come along, you just need to be keen to explore songwriting, music and lyrics.

As well as writing songs, there will be the change to perform at Cuckoo [Song] Writers gigs, and get into the studio to record the songs you write. We’re really keen to support young people who want to put on their own gigs/ exhibitions etc. in Sunderland too.

Before the group starts in January, we’re running a FREE special day-long songwriting session with Martin on 12 December 2015, 11am-4pm at Pop Recs Ltd. It’s a chance to get started on some tunes, meet some other young writers and eat some Chocolate Santas.

Come and find us at: 

Pop Recs Ltd
27 Stockton Road
Sunderland
SR2 7AQ

If you’d like to sign up for the songwriting day on the 12 December or if you are interested in attending the Cuckoo Young [Song] Writers group, please email laura@newwritingnorth.com or phone 0191 2048851.
