Author: Mikalyn HayGreat insight Savannah - I like your advice to learn from any rejection and to plow through it. I have been successful and unsuccessful in FACTOR applications in the past and I certainly tried to learn from the comments when I was rejected and then dust myself off and try again. I have been lucky to have great people tell me all the time that dealing with rejection is part of the process when you put your heart and soul out in music for the world to judge :) Best regards Mikalyn HayRead more comments

Author: Howard DruckmanWhen I heard that Dylan won the Nobel prize for Literature, 16-year-old me was giddy with excitement. I'm a long way from 16, but it's still an exciting development, if only because it recognizes the art of songwriting as literature. Certainly a handful of songwriters -- Dylan, Lennon-McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Lou Reed, Paul Simon, Smokey Robinson, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell -- invented the very idea that popular song could be considered literature, so such recognition seems fitting. My Oxford English Dictionary defines literature as "written works, especially those whose value lies in beauty of language or in emotional effect." Dylan wrote his songs, in incredible, beautifully inventive language and imagery, and their emotional effect was so huge that it helped changed the course of a generation (though that certainly wasn't his intent). To me, it;s literature, though I understand how it isn't to many others. And I agree with Andrew that we really need a new Nobel Prize category for music.Read more comments
