Well, You’ve Heard Me Talk About It Enough
The BMI Workshop composer-lyricist application is open! If you’re interested in learning how to write musical theater (or you already write musical theater), consider applying to the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop! You will meet incredible writers, you’ll learn to fail faster and get better and take criticism in the room (let me tell you how it feels to write a comedy song and no one laughs...) — and it’s free. (Can you believe it?)
The two-year program set me on a wild trajectory and I’ll never look back. Info here. Deadline is August 1. If you’re the slightest bit interested, do it.
(And if you're not into musical theater but are considering applying to some other thing and haven't made it happen yet, DO THAT. You can do it!)
