Music Matrix and Arts Council England are to hold the first London Songwriters Week later this month.
The event is designed to celebrate the art of songwriting, as well as providing a platform to showcase new songwriting talent via a series of showcases, seminars and performances.
The event will be held during the week of the Ivor Novello awards - May 19 to 23 - and includes a mix of Q&A sessions and performances.
The week's events will cover issues such as how to make money from your songs, writing music for film and TV and the move from producing to writing. Most events will be free to the public.
