Hi Songwriters. Many of you are as concerned about the weather, as we are. We are going to postpone the Melody Workshop on Thursday, April 11. I am very bummed about this MN weather. I was looking forward to this workshop! I am going to see if we can do it next week instead. We will send out updates ASAP on our plan. Thanks for understanding. – Chad
