February Album Writing Month

Songwriting No Comments »

As February approaches, many Lilac Writer users are getting ready for February Album Writing Month (FAWM). If you aren't familiar with FAWM, you can get the details at fawm.org. The challenge is simple however - writing 14 songs in 28 days.

Lilac Writer is a great tool to organize your FAWM lyrics or collaborate with other "fawmers." During January, we have had a great number of new users sign up getting ready for February.

To do our part, we have made some adjustments to our pricing plans. Even though we haven't officially kicked off the subscriptions, we want to make sure you have enough room for all of your songs. The free accounts will now support 100 songs (up from 10). In addition, free accounts will let you invite up to 5 collaborators per song.

To see the details, check out the revised Pricing and Plans page:
