Zigzag Mountain Songwriting Camp is a weekend songwriting retreat on 50 beautiful acres on Mt. Hood near Zigzag, Oregon. Songwriters gather for several days to write, share songs and enjoy the beauty of the natural site.
There will be two camps in 2014: July 17-20 (three days) and July 23-27 (four days).
Writing workshops in the mornings, with free time to write and enjoy the wooded site and surrounding national forest in the afternoons. Evenings we gather for song circles and camp fires. Emphasis is on crafting songs that ring true and express the unique voice and experiences of the writer. All levels are welcome; space is limited.

Three nights of camping, music, friendship, good food, songwriting workshops - and a lot of fun - an hour's drive from Portland.
