Slumber Mag's Songwriting Series is a monthly prompt and community experience that aims to help open the door for new songwriters who don’t quite know where to begin. The series also hopes to provide a fresh approach for those looking to invigorate their process.
May’s Songwriting Prompt:
Go out on a Songwriting Harvesting Adventure! Leave the house with a notepad and a recording device. Write down and record snippets of anything that seems compelling. Pay attention to your senses–write you what you see, smell, hear, feel and taste.
When you get home, sit down with your instrument and make up a soundtrack to go with your time out. Don’t add lyrics yet, just melody.
Take the soundtrack and your notes/recordings from the outing–put them together in a song!
Record a demo and share it with us at firstname.lastname@example.org! Write us a 3-4 sentence introduction to the track & your writing process–you can also include a demo cover if you wish. Be sure to also let us know if you’re ok with a public streaming link to the song.

What are your music goals for the next year? What do you need to make them happen?
