Grammy nominated songwriter Skip Ewing is once again offering some aspiring songwriters the chance to learn from the best through Skip Ewing’s Horse & Writer “Invitational” 2009. Held at the Lazy L&B Ranch in Dubios, Wyoming, the event offers selected applicants “concentrated songwriting mentorship in the areas of creativity, self-exploration and observation, music business, co-writing, craftsmanship and more.” The key word here is “selected,” as Ewing stresses that Horse & Writer is not a songwriting contest. Ewing and his staff listen to each application package to identify the talented, committed writers who they feel have genuine promise—something Ewing calls “seeds of greatness.” All selected applicants attend on a full scholarship worth $2500 and pay no tuition. For its ninth consecutive year, Horse & Writer will feature Ewing, along with hit songwriters/mentors Clay Mills (“Beautiful Mess,” “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”) and Deanna Bryant (“Johnny and June,” “Stupid Boy”) overseeing the seven-day songwriting program and offering one-on-one instruction. Horse & Writer “Invitational” 2009 takes place July 12-18. Application fee is $100 with a two song maximum. Applicants wishing to submit additional songs can send a third song for a $50 charge and a fourth for an additional $40. Applications must be postmarked by May 15. Click here for more information.
