The Portland chapter is a vital resource to songwriters living not only in the Portland area, but also in the northwest. Our monthly Performing Songwriter Showcase offers our members the opportunity to not only share and perform their songs with their peers and community, but to also share in monthly workshops that vary in topic and discussion. Our monthly events are always free to our members, and allow them to showcase their songs at one of the finest listening rooms in the Portland area.
