Aloha JPF LA [Linked Image]

I didn't get to send this out soon enough, so some great events like the Los Angeles Music Network JAM & SongNet's Monthly Seminar/Song Critique have already passed but I still pasted info on this & other upcoming songwriters events for you to take a part of this month. All the events below are JPFolks related or from our new Coalition of Songwriter/Music Organizations in LA. They're really cool folks all about uniting & empowering each other - so please look into joining their events as well. Tell them I sent you.

Since we don't have our own meeting planned this month, I think it would be great for us to join the Orange County JPFolks chapter for their great workshop & song circle coming up on Monday 10/16. All the details are below & I will be attending. Please email Linda (info below) if you plan on attending.

Lastly, here is some info & links for our upcoming JPFolks Awards on Nov 4th - let's celebrate together!
