We invite local songwriters to perform their material, and offer critiques and comments, from peers and audience members. We hope to extend the medium, by receiving live critiques from Facebook and Twitter followers of the program.The Songwriters workshop was originally began by Elliott Kayne and Peter Prieto in early 2011 with the idea of providing a forum for local area songwriters to meet, critique one another and develop the craft of Songwriting in the area. It was originally sponsored by the Pike County Historical Society who loaned their facilities, and support. Songwriters from the workshop have appeared on Carl Richard's and Mr. Phil's TV Shows, on Access 23 TV in Port Jervis NY.
