Who Are We
WE ARE PRO-COMMUNITY.
Here at ProWrites, we are all about growth. Whether that is in knowledge, expanding your circle of friends, or increasing your professional contacts, we want to help create a home in the music industry and a clear starting point for our CoWriters. We’d like to welcome you to our community of songwriters in Music City. It’s the Nashville way. Community is everything.
WE ARE PRO-SONGS.
We love music and we want to see more made. The power of a song is endless, and we believe one song can change everything. Whether its someone’s career, someone’s life, or the world – we are happy to help facilitate the creation of more songs. It’s all about the songs.
WE ARE PRO-SONGWRITERS.
We are songwriters ourselves, so we get it. We wanted to create a more clear path for people like us when they first move to town. Going after your dreams is scary, and we want to help to make your dreams more attainable. After becoming a member, we will provide not only access to songwriting opportunity, but education through articles, blogs, podcasts, song critiques, and seminars.
We also wanted to see a way for our ProWriter friends to turn their expertise into money in their pocket. If you pay the producer, guitar player, drummer, bass player, engineer, backup singer, uber driver and Jimmy John’s deliver guy, why shouldn’t the person responsible for a songs creation get a piece of the pie? Songwriters deserve to be treated fairly.
WE ARE PRO-SONGWRITERS RIGHTS.
Technology moves quick, and unfortunately, the music industry is hard pressed to keep up. That’s why we have made it our business to fight for the rights of Songwriters in the music business. A portion of our profits will go directly to aiding better laws passed for songwriters in Washington. Songwriters deserve better.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COWRITER AND A PROWRITER?
CoWriters are songwriters at any non-professional level. Ranging from hobbyists to full-time independent artists, CoWriters are still on their way to the top, and can benefit from writing with – and learning from – our ProWriters.
ProWriters are songwriters with experience to spare. Whether they have independent artist cuts, number one hits on the radio, Publishing, Record deals or even Grammy Awards, our ProWriters have mastered their craft. Each ProWriter can set their own day rate, and it will reflect their expertise level.
CAN ANYONE SIGN UP?
Yes, anyone can apply! However, both types of writers must apply for a subscription and be approved by our team.
IF I AM A COWRITER BUT BELIEVE I SHOULD BE A PROWRITER, CAN I APPLY FOR AN UPGRADE?
Yes! If you begin as a CoWriter and want to apply to upgrade to a ProWriter subscription, you may do so twice a year.
HOW DOES MONEY GET EXCHANGED BETWEEN COWRITERS AND PROWRITERS?
CoWriters fund the write at the time of booking. We hold the funds until BOTH the CoWriter and ProWriter confirm that the write is complete. Then, we release the funds to the ProWriter through PayPal. No money must exchange hands or be negotiated. ProWriters do, however, have the power to offer a write to a CoWriter for a discounted rate, or for free, at their discretion.
CAN I SPLIT THE PROWRITER’S DAY RATE WITH OTHER COWRITERS?
Yes! You have the option at booking to split the write and day rate with up to two other CoWriters of your choosing.
CAN I BRING ANYONE ELSE WITH ME TO THE WRITE?
Yes, you have the option to bring up to two other CoWriters as long as they have split the day rate with you through the ProWrites site. You may not bring parents, managers or friends with you. If these rules are not followed, the ProWriter has the obligation to cancel the write and let us know. CoWriters will be suspended if this rule is not followed.
CAN I SCHEDULE WRITES WITH OTHER COWRITERS?
Yes, with a subscription, you can request to book unlimited writes with fellow CoWriters for free! One of the biggest perks, and networking tools, of ProWrites.
