Texas Christian Songwriters Association
We're a non-profit organization created to help faith-based songwriters throughout the state get their music heard so it can bless the Kingdom of God. Each monthly meeting will include fellowship among writers, song-sharing, and an educational section designed to build-up each member.
Nashville Songwriters Association International
Based in Nashville, NSAI represents all musical genres and includes songwriters from across the United States and overseas. NSAI provides a haven for both proven and undiscovered writers -- to get a cup of coffee, to make a phone call or just to receive a word of advice or consolation. To quote NSAI’s motto: "IT ALL BEGINS WITH A SONG" -- and, sometimes, it all begins over lunch.

Austin Songwriters Group
Tuesday nights are Song Doctor nights!!!!! We start at 6:30. Bring a dozen or so copies of your new song, old song, just about to be recorded song, or unfinished song with you and get some feed back from folks that are here for the same reason you are.......to write better songs. It is a great way to make yourself get out of the box. For those of you that perform it gives you a chance to sing in the presence of others you don't know and it sharpens your skills....in a nice safe place. If you don't want to play your song you can bring a CD with you or just sing without an instrument. You will hear songs that you would never have thought about writing for any number of reasons. We are our greatest resource, and no one understands us like we understand each other. Show up and give this a try. You're gonna love it. You will be thinking about writing songs all the way home. Maybe you will write one on the way home. It really is a creative gathering. It's free...just takes a little deciding you want your songs to get better. You have to be present to win!! BTW I know some of you are thinking your songs are perfect. Come anyway. : ) You could help others. If you would like to come and watch this little happening, and not participate to see what's up we are good with that. It is a great place to meet co-writers and singers or instrumentalist that you might want to work with. We meet at the office at 3105 Manchaca.
