We are here to provide artistic platforms for members to feel supported and part of a community when sharing their creative work. Each letter we receive will have the opportunity to be selected and brought to life through the art of spoken word on the Songbird Creative podcast.

“Wow, did Songbird Creative awaken my creativity! This letter writing has added richness and positivity to my life. It allows me to tell, and share personal stories from my own life, or I can write from more of an imaginative place. I have been challenged, but it is also fun, and rewarding too. I’m always looking forward to the new Songbird Letter coming in the mail.”
