FAWMlogo2Tom Slatter is a London, UK based songwriter and podcaster. He produces the Songwright blog.  He was a guest on the  For the Sake of the Song in 2008.  On January 31, he posted that he was participating in February Album Writing Month, taking on the challenge to write 14 songs in  the 28  days of February.  I decided to take the plunge, keeping in mind that at my most prolific, I wrote 14 songs in 9 months, and last year I wrote 6 songs.   Fast forward 10 days and I have written 8 songs and begun to get to know a ton of great songwriters on the website.

Today, I’m going to talk songwriting, FAWM and play a few tracks by FAWM songwriters.
