Annual Membership:  $35

Step 1.  Submit the form below.

Step 2.  At CSA, we accept passionate songwriters of all ages, backgrounds, and genres. We’ll review your music website, youtube channel, or social media for passion. Often times passion presents in a song recording, performance, and/or song lyrics. This review process may take up to 4 weeks, but usually we can respond much sooner.

Step 3.  If accepted as a new member, we’ll send you next steps to complete the process. If we have questions about your submission, we’ll follow up in email.
