SAMI was co-founded in 1992 by songwriter's Scott Greeson, Shirley Martin, Anita Wood, Mark Skidmore and Brian Koning as a resource for the purpose of education, encouragement, networking and development of songwriters in mid-north Indiana.
Through the means of workshops, showcases and monthly meetings, SAMI has sustained growth through unselfish support of area musicians.
The Shirley Martin Scholarship for Young Songwriters supports young songwriters in memory of Shirley Martin who passed away November 10, 1998.
