Findlay Napier & Boo Hewerdine by Elly L

In April 2020 Boo and Findlay ran an online songwriting course for Moniack Mhor: Scotland’s Creative Writing Centre. There were 12 participants and they were really struck that we were able to work with people who were geographically remote and others who wouldn’t normally be able to afford a residential course. 

 

The five day songwriting retreats will be based on Zoom. Each day we will set two tasks for the participants and offer feedback on those completed tasks.

 

The course challenges writers of various levels through examples and exercises. On the Wednesday afternoon we will invite another songwriter to perform a hour long online concert and answer questions in a Q&A.

 

On Thursday we will have a playback session where we share what the participants have been working on.

 

On Friday both Boo and Findlay will have half hour one-to-ones with each participant focusing on career and songwriting goals beyond the songwriting week. This is important so that what we’ve worked on in the week is carried into their personal creative practice. Both Fin and Boo are firm believers in aftercare and have guided many of their course attendees on their next steps.
