About MAS


The Minnesota Association of Songwriters is a volunteer, non-profit (not 501c3) organization dedicated to celebrating the art of creating original music by combining arts, education and community outreach.

MAS meets twice monthly to learn about the craft of songwriting, to review and provide commentary about each other's music and to exchange information about topics ranging from song contests and conferences to legal issues and internet concerns.

Through workshops, review meetings, showcases, networking and other activities, we offer opportunities for all to strengthen their songwriting and performance skills, while encouraging collaboration and exploration of the creative process.

We invite you to join us as we explore the joys of songwriting!

"I have found MAS to be a wonderful resource in many ways:  the song reviews, the monthly meetings featuring local speakers, the song circles, workshops featuring nationally known songwriters and showcase performance opportunities have all helped me improve my songwriting skills. If you are interested in becoming a better songwriter, or just want to hang with those who do, you should join MAS." – Linda Lee
