song writing publication

I have a friend whose poetry is too lyrical for anything but music. I mentioned songwriting to him....he digs it. I want to encourage him to seek publication, but how would one go about that with songs rather than poetry. Anyone know?

Confusing punctuation and capitalization. Sometimes a period and an indent ends one sentence and begins another, sometimes not.

Thank you, Les.

And Hugh, we can't all be perfect like you (sticking my tounge out at you)

Oh, was Hugh's comment a criticism?

I thought it was a poem he was working on !

(fyi, Hugh's comment was meant for another thread)


Talia,

Tell your friend that SONG-WRITING WORKSHOPS are a great place for melody people and word people to meet and team up. A lot of community centers and "extensions" and activity centers have song-writing workshops; they're not hard to find. If your friend shows up and say, "I have words but not music," there will probably be lots of people eager to give it a go.

The cheek is the pluperfect place for Hugh's tounge.

Glenda, try not to give Hugh "openings" like that.

Marian, it was deliberate. Surely even he won't go for something that obvious. Even if he does, it will be amusing.

I would have, but am physically restricted from commenting about cheeks.
