Rewrite Class

Janet Jeffries
Development Executive @ Lawrence Bender Productions
Sundays 7/12, 7/19, 7/26 & 8/2 @ 11:00am - 1:00pm PT

"While Roadmap connects writers with many fine execs, Janet is far and away my favorite. Her feedback is always the right mix of supportive yet revision-oriented; I always come away with incredibly valuable insights and new ways of seeing my writing. Her professional yet friendly personality is also top-notch." - Jill S., Screenwriter

Class is limited to 5 writers (open to both Features & TV Projects)!

The first draft is just getting it on the paper. Now that your ideas are on the page, the next step is to take it from half-baked to fully realized. To help you out with that, Roadmap has created a 4-week program to help you identify the issues and areas for improvement that you should focus on when composing your second draft. 

Your instructor will read your entire script before the program starts to better help you understand the direction in which you want to take the story and how to further improve dialogue, character, flow, structure, etc.

Each week will start with a lecture that encompasses an overall common issue that most scripts face. This will be followed by personalized feedback for each writer targeting specific areas and a face-to-face dialogue on how to potentially improve your overall draft.

Each writer will implement the notes given each week and will submit starred pages tracking the changes so that the instructor can help keep your progress on track. 

By the end of only 4 weeks, you will have a strong second draft to start marketing!
