Announcing: the next session of the 5 in 5 Song Challenge!

This fast growing challenge has been a SongFancy favorite in 2017, and we’re bringing it into the new year. Grab your seat here and come write 5 songs in 5 days with an amazing group of SongFancy writers.

[ Save your seat here! ]

Why this challenge is so awesome:

Got writer’s block?
This challenge will kickstart your inspiration and get you writing. Fast.

Struggle with coming up with good ideas to write about?
I got you covered – each day, we’ll all be writing to pre-made songwriting prompts. You don’t have to wait for a great idea to come to you.

Have zero time to sit down and write?
This is a fast-paced, speed songwriting challenge. You’ll have 24 hours to write a complete song. The best way to do that is to sit down and knock it out in 30 mins – 1 hour, or write it in the gaps of your day.

If you’re feeling uninspired, hating your songs, need new songs for an upcoming record, or just plain want to dive headfirst into songwriting, this challenge is perfect for you.

What you’ll get during this challenge:

  • 5 daily song prompts to write to
  • Private Challenge-only Facebook group
  • Feedback on your songs (from me & the group)
  • Encouragement, tips, and tricks!
  • 5 NEW SONGS!

This is the quickest way to kick your inner critic OUT of the writing room!

After this challenge, you’ll have learned how to write quickly and effectively despite your mean little inner critic! Sign up below:

How it works:

When you join, you’ll get access to the private challenge Facebook group. Each day for 5 days, I’ll post a unique song prompt. Your mission for that day is to write a completed song to that prompt, then come back to the challenge Facebook group and share it! (Sharing is totally optional, but it’s a wonderful way to gain feedback, make friends, and conquer self-doubt).

You can submit songs that include music and lyrics, or lyrics only. Many writers even participate with their favorite cowriters!

The Contest portion:

You can participate in the challenge just to have fun and push yourself, or you can also choose to submit your songs to the contest portion of the event for fun prizes! We have a lyrics only category, as well as a lyric + music category.

Daily winners: The best song from each day wins a digital copy of my book, The Beautiful Book of Songwriting Prompts. There will be 5 daily winners total.

Grand Prize Winner: The best song from the challenge (or the songwriter that has submitted a collection of great songs) will win a digital copy of The Beautiful Book of Songwriting Prompts as well as a featured interview on
