If you're interested in hosting a Danielle Howle Songwriting Workshop, please reach out! Each workshop is a day full of intentional group gatherings, free-writing sessions, and guided exercises & discussions focused on sharpening  songwriting skills. There are also opportunities to perform to and with a small group of fellow creatives in a safe and supportive setting. I would love to discuss your vision and location options to see what magic we can create. 

Being able to host these events is a dream come true and I'm grateful to everyone who has supported Danielle Howle Workshops & Retreats! 


I'm excited to offer virtual songwriting one-on-ones! If you're interested in a 30-minute Zoom session, please reach out for more information and scheduling. Click here


One of the inspiration activities for live Swamp Session Retreat participants is a 1/4 mile walking trail with eight stations, each with a unique creative writing (or thinking!) challenge. In late 2022, we created this virtual guide to the Songwriting Nature Workshop in order to share this incredible resource with people beyond our in-person guests. Writers, creative people, and teachers can utilize this video to bring much joy and creativity, as others have felt along the trail for many years! Educators may wish to download the transcript to guide in group discussions and activities (just click/tap to download).

The Swamp Sessions Songwriting Retreat is a three day weekend at the solar powered Swamp House in the Francis Marion Forest. New and experienced artists come together and magic is made. Songwriters and musicians who have been to Swamp Sessions call upon this experience over time because it continues to serve them in life, creativity, and career. At this retreat, artists can record their songs, share their works at the campfire jams, walk the songwriting challenge trail, and work one-on-one with our music staff. Some artists enjoy all of the above, and having alone time to create in a cool spot to work on their own. It’s a safe place to take creative risks.
