DSC_0087The North Carolina Songwriters Co-op (NCSC) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the support and promotion of songwriters in the state of North Carolina. We support beginning and established songwriters by sponsoring opportunities for performance, providing feedback, and hosting occasional events such as songwriter showcases and informational workshops.

Songwriters Circle

The songwriters circle at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro is held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 6:30pm.
