I'm having trouble creating a link to my lyrics and songs

I'm trying to submit my song lyrics (and also the song itself). The instructions on the American Songwriter said to make a public link to the song.

I tried to do this and didn't get very far. The song lyrics at this point are in a music memos file (or maybe voice memos file). So I just want to create that link.

If someone on your end can do a screen share that might make it easier. I'll also want to submit my song.

You can reach me at: tom@***.com

Or call me at: 207-449-****

Thank you so much!

Tom

Original review Mar 29, 2023

The entry was open without guidelines. Process unknown.

No knowledge of how many entries for that contest. Seemed like a gateway American Songwriter product sales. Judges and winners were very narrow and specific Genre of country music. No indication any of my entries were viewed, even by title.

Overall, I don't know what to make of this contest. Wish it had a more personal connection to what's out here on the streets.

Wrong songs in contest, cancel

When you sent the email conformation, the songs are written out in the wrong format if they are like the ones I saw. Also, a word was left out of "It's A Song" and a word was changed on "Ol' Dirt Road", both my mistakes. I would like to be able to make the corrections before they are judged or cancel those two.

I cancelled and unsubscribe yet they have renewed my membership automatically. They have no direct way to contact them.

No phone number and they do not seem to answer their email. I am requesting a total refund.

I tried to login but am unable to rest password because their email doesn't come through. I do not recommend them

As expected, they continue to ignore emails. They are a scam ! KEEP AWAY !

Original review Feb 22, 2020

American songwriter Magazine has several lyric and music "contests" every year under the heading of AmericanSongWriter.com. A few months ago, I decided to enter their lyric contest.

Several weeks went by and I never heard from them. They never acknowledged my payment and they never informed me about the status of my lyrics. I decided to email them. I was told that they NEVER received my entries or payment.

I told them my bank verified payment. Since they claimed that they never received my entries I told them to send me a refund. Suddenly, when they heard the word " refund " they changed their story and said yes they received my entries. However, since they already " reviewed" them they can't issue a refund !

They claim that they NEVER inform anyone about the status of their entries. They only inform " winners ". In other words this magazine offers no acknowledgment or accountability . They can basically throw the entries into the garbage and PRETEND to review it !

If you like scams then this magazine is perfect for you ! Enclosed are two emails where they indicate that they haven't received my payment or entries UNTIL I request a refund.

The songwriting contest is the same thing, a waste of time and money. Watched the count on my 3 songs submitted on YouTube.

The one that was watched I received an email stating it was being screened, the other 2 nothing. But they took the money. When I emailed about this issue, they responded that all songs were reviewed. When I went to check on my analytics nothing appeared.

Waste of money. Would never do so again.
