Music lyric writing is a complex, mysterious art. Celebrated Australian songwriter Nick Cave has called finding the words to put to his music ‘the most difficult thing he does’. But why is it so hard? And where do we begin?

In this workshop, novelist and award-winning songwriter Sam Carmody will examine the process of turning sounds into poetry and discuss the importance that imagery plays in writing effective, memorable lyrics.

Sam Carmody is an award-winning songwriter and novelist, originally from Geraldton, Western Australia. His first novel The Windy Season was long-listed for the Indie Book Award, shortlisted for the Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award and Territory Read Book Awards and won the Readings Prize for New Australia fiction. He has also won a prestigious West Australian Music Industry (WAMi) song award.
