Songwriting requires talent, and at its core, is another form of writing. Many of the techniques that apply to other forms of storytelling also apply to tunes. Wiegandt, renowned musician with half a dozen successful CDs to his name, explains the process of creating a song that not only entertains but also has larger meanings. Patrick von Wiegandt is a writer, singer, musician, and producer/engineer. He has also written eight screenplays and many songs. He just finished recording his latest CD Swanky with Grammy winning producer/engineer, Al Schmitt, at Capitol Studiosin Hollywood. Swanky isa collection of great songs from the Jazz Age(1920s to 1940s). Patrick has over thirty-five years of experience in the music, recording, and entertainmentindustry. William Bernhardt, Executive Director of the Rose State Short Course on Writing. In addition to being the nationally bestselling author of thirty-three books, in 2005 Bernhardt started hosting writing workshops and small-group writing seminars that have educated many authors now published at major houses. He holds a Masters Degree in English Literature and is the only writer to have received both the Royden B. Davis Distinguished Author Award and the H. Louise Cobb Distinguished Author Award, which is given "in recognition of an outstanding body of work that has profoundly influenced the way in which we understand ourselves and American society at large." Most recently, he has published three books on writing, Story Structure, Creating Character, and Perfecting Plot, and his first book of poetry, The White Bird. He compiled and edited two anthologies as charitable fundraisers for The Nature Conservancy and The Childrens Defense Fund. In addition, he has written plays, a musical (book and music), humor, nonfiction articles, children books, and New York Times crossword puzzles.

He also has published poetry in more than a dozen different literary journals and is a member of PEN International and the American Academy of Poets.
