The Darebin Songwriters‘ Guild welcomes people with a song in their hearts or a tune in their heads. It‘s an opportunity for songwriters to get together to learn from and encourage each other, to listen and be listened to. It‘s nurturing but unprecious, great for inspiration and networking. Lyricists meet tunesmiths, singers meet writers, guitarists meet pianists… the possibilities are endless.

This is (very) slowly becoming the website of the Darebin Songwriters’ Guild. You can also check out our Facebook page, email us at info@darebinsongwritersguild.org and/or join our mailing list:
