Karyn Folan
Author, Screenwriter & Producer
Sunday 3/15 @ 10:00am - 11:30am PT

Stop us if you've heard this one. "I've been working on my novel for so long, I feel like I'll never finish." If you're coming from writing scripts, plays, or short stories, tackling a novel seems like an impossible task - one that's easy to put off and procrastinate on once you've already started. Writing a novel is a process, and while it's not uncommon or even unexpected that a novel take more time than a screenplay, we still have to finish the novel before we can get it out there. 

But this year, 2020, is the year you finish that novel you've been working on! Roadmap welcomes Karyn Folan to give you all the strategies, tips, and tools to crush this goal! 

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • Commercial fiction 
  • Characters and structure  
  • Setting up a schedule and sticking to it 
  • Marketing and publishing commercial fiction
  • Live Q&A
