Gearing up for St. Louis

Friends, we’re over-flowing with excitement for this year’s FARM gathering in St. Louis on October 11-14, 2012.  We’ve got big plans to bring you all the terrific workshops, panels, mentors, showcasing, & networking opportunities that you’ve come to expect from FARM, along with a few surprises, all in a gorgeous new venue that is allowing us to grow. We’re so pleased to welcome the venerable John Gorka who will be delivering this year’s key note address as well as presenting a master songwriting class on Thursday!

Registration is open now at our lowest price. Rates increase on August 15!

Make your hotel reservations now! (you can always cancel, but you don’t want to miss out)

Private showcases were so successful last year, so let’s do it again!

We look forward to seeing you in the fall – which will be here before you know it, so why not make your plans now? Get it out of the way so you don’t forget. Check it off your list! Come on. What are you waiting for??
