6 Reasons to join the S.A.C.

1. CONNECTION

Meet fellow songwriters at our Regional Writers Groups or through our Online Members Community. Whether you’re just starting out, or already a seasoned songwriter, fellow artists are great resources both for industry news, performing opportunities, meeting other musicians including potential collaborators, as well as inspiring and creative friendships. You’ll also be connected to the industry through news and information featured on our website, as well as the professional panels at our events and workshops.

2. GROWTH

Your songwriting is sure to improve if you have your song assessed in person at a Date with a Demo, or mail it in for feedback through our Song Assessment service. Attending our workshops, and listening to the work of fellow members will also help you take your craft to the next level.

3. EXPOSURE

In addition to performing at our local song stages (many of which are run through the regional writer’s group), your increased participation in our various events and workshops will have you rubbing elbows and having your work heard by leading songwriters in the industry.

4. SAVE MONEY

We offer a wide range of money-saving opportunities to our members including discounts on workshops, books, magazines, cd manufacturing, studio time (available occasionally), software, in addition to Zipcar rentals! (See Member Benefits for more details)

5. PROTECT YOUR WORK

Exclusive access to the Song Vault (formally Canadian Song Depository), a copyright registration service that ensures your work is protected.

6. HELP US HELP YOU!

The SAC does significant advocacy work to ensure that songwriters are fairly compensated in an industry that is increasingly challenged to protect creative works due to digital downloading and file sharing.
