Registration is open now for the Platform's Christian songwriters workshop in Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, Aug. 13. The 2016 Platform Workshop will feature prolific Dove and Stellar-award winning songwriter and gospel recording artist Babbie Mason, who returns for a second year by popular demand. The full-day workshop provides aspiring and experienced songwriters with instruction on the craft, ministry and business of songwriting.
You'll receive feedback from Mason as she shares tips and provides instruction on how to write great songs that impact listeners.

The workshop includes networking time to connect with other songwriters and music professionals.
