Songwriting Workshop and Concert - Francesca de Valence


The I Heart Songwriting Club is going on tour. Founder and director of the global online songwriting club, Francesca de Valence, is touring to Nowra for a songwriting workshop and concert.

The I Heart Songwriting Club focuses on the process of creativity through restriction. It exists as a community space for songwriters who are isolated in their practice, it is a tool of motivation and accountability for songwriters who have ‘writer’s block’ or struggle to finish songs, and is a support network to keep songwriters writing every single week. The benefits to many members are well beyond simply musical and fall into the category of 'life-changing'. After operating as a private ‘pilot’ club for 2 years, the doors were opened to public membership in July 2016. Within 2 months there are 100 members from all over the world – each writing songs every single week through the online platform.

Francesca de Valence will be running a songwriting workshop and a mini-concert and will be sharing some of her songwriting tips gathered from extensive research – namely writing 115 1-hour songs in 115 weeks. Francesca has been acknowledged by the Los Angeles Music Awards with an International Songwriter of the Year Award and nationally with an Australian Songwriting Award, has supported artists including Belinda Carlisle and The Manhattan Transfer and her music can be heard on ABC radio around the country. Francesca holds a Masters in Music Studies (Qld Conservatorium); teaches at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and runs workshops and presents at national conferences in contemporary singing and songwriting.
