The Bubbling Pot

A Monthly(ish) Songwriting Play Space via zoom

Upcoming sessions: I’ve postponed these sessions over the summer and planning to restart in the Autumn when we’re all starting to hunker down again…

These hour long drop in sessions are open to all, whether you have any experience of writing or songwriting or not. I will facilitate short writing and musical exercises that help to get the pot bubbling. This isn’t a ‘revising’ or ‘editing’ session – it’s about getting creativity flowing. There is no right or wrong, just play. You will be very much in your own space, as the exercises are mostly individual, though there’ll be a bit of creative exchange via the chat function. You can keep your video off or have it on as you need.

Cost: £4-£8 (if you would like to come but need a further discount, please do get in touch).

To book a place, email Penny on and I’ll send you the zoom link.

What you will need:

Your notebook and pen

A Dictaphone (or recording app on your phone – but turn the sound off the phone if you’re using this so it can’t interrupt your train of thought!)

Some loose leaf paper

Coloured pens/pencils

A warm drink and a blanket or whatever makes you feel comfy and safe

Handouts with the exercises listed after each session will be posted here as well:
