COSA is a nonprofit organization founded to promote, educate and motivate members to write, market and improve their skills as songwriters.



We meet on the last Sunday of every month at Kelly D's located at 1012 S Cleveland in Bend, Oregon. 2:00 PM till 5:00 PM. Anyone interested in songwriting is welcome to attend.

At one of our meetings you will find a varied group of songwriters ranging from beginners to experienced professionals. The thread that binds us together is the common love of music and lyrics. All styles of songs are welcome at COSA. You may hear country, hard rock, soft rock, pop, blues, children's music, religious songs, instrumentals or anything else someone brings in at one of our meetings.

We have contact info for publishing, copyrighting, collaboration and studio / demo services. Our meeting activities include guest lecturers, workshops, current musical events and group discussions.

At each meeting we also have a Song-of-the-Month contest. Members listen to entries (either played live or supplied in CD format) and vote for their favorite song. Winners receive a certificate of achievement and their song gets a free entry into our Song-of-the-Year contest. The song will also be played on KPOV.FM courtesy of Rick Miller and the Center Stage radio program.
