"This workshop was truly an amazing experience! Our instructor provided a wonderfully supportive environment that was fun while being productive. Her feedback was insightful and honest, and her overall vibe was just spot-on." -Jeff, Song Writing Participant


Nancy Falkow is an Ireland-based (formerly Philadelphia) singer-songwriter. She has shared stages, taxis, dressing rooms and guitars with nationally touring musicians from Donovan to Daniel Lanois to Richie Havens. Songs of hers have appeared in TV and in film. She has been collaborating with musicians and writing in genres from pop to rock to folk for many years, but was always a teacher and a poet first, and draws from that well of experience with every song and workshop. With three successful albums under her belt, after the birth of her daughter, she began writing for what is her most successful album—"Under the Stars"—which she released under the project name Sunflow. This is her 16th year at the Getaway and she always looks forward to a trip home to run the Song Writing Workshop to see familiar faces and meet new enthusiasts. Her website is and you can listen to some songs here. Read Nancy's piece, "Notes on Eavesdropping," on her method for writing songs.

This writers' workshop is part of Peter Murphy's Winter Poetry & Prose Getaway, held each January near Atlantic City, NJ.
