Top 5 Finalists - 2020 JumpStart Writing Competition

Roadmap Writers is excited to announce the Top 5 pilots and features for the 2020 JumpStart Writing Competition.

These stories span a variety of genres while collectively showcasing rich characters and ideas that transport us to dystopic landscapes, 19th century Africa on the verge of colonial conflict, to the secluded and dangerous woods of a vast state park, to a NYC set rom-com that brings new meaning to the phrase art imitates life.

JumpStart leverages the reach and resources of Roadmap Writers to advocate for these talented emerging voices and put their work in front of dedicated and hungry industry professionals. This year's judging panel includes execs and reps from companies such as 3 Arts Entertainment, Kaplan Perrone, Circle of Confusion, Gotham Group, Fourth Wall Entertainment, Zero Gravity, and many more.
