From the Gatlinburg Songwriters Board of Directors

Hello friends!

We understand that everyone is awaiting more information regarding this year’s GSF event.

Complete information will be forthcoming as soon as we have it available. Information below is subject to change as plans are finalized.

What we can share is that for 2023, we will be downsizing to more of a ‘series’ style.

The Gatlinburg Inn will be hosting all of our rounds. Please visit for accommodation information.

We will be going down to two days only…Friday and Saturday.
There will be no opening night ceremonies, but there will be other networking opportunities between and after rounds.

Since we don’t have the number of venues we’ve had in the past, we will be unable to host our selected songwriter rounds.

We understand that this is disappointing, and we certainly hope to offer those again in the future.

As far as additional events, we will only be offering one songwriting class on Saturday morning. We will post more information on that as soon as possible.

We realize that all of this looks very different than what all of us are used to or wanted.

We hope that you will be patient with us as we do our best to restructure and improve.

Our goal is to continue to keep the spirit of our festival alive while we go back to the drawing board and revisit options for the future.

We look forward to seeing all of you in August!

The GSF Board
