Jones, Dean Songwriting with the Fleas Literature- Creative Writing,

Dog on Fleas will begin the program by playing some of their original songs and talking about the writing process for the songs. Band members will then divide the audience up into groups and then help the groups write songs. The songwriting will be guerilla-style quick, and will hopefully let audience members take home a template for how to write a song, and most importantly access an outlet for self-expression. The band will then perform the songs with help from audience members. Dog on Fleas will end the program with more of their own music.
