2020/2021 Top Tier Competition

Top Tier Competition


Roadmap Writers has helped more than 200 screenwriters sign with industry representation in just three years. We pride ourselves on developing and working with the most promising up-and-coming screenwriters and partnering with the best and brightest industry professionals the entertainment world has to offer.

At the pinnacle of all our programs is the Top Tier Program, where the bulk of our screenwriting success stories come from.

Through the Top Tier Program, writers from all over the world have signed with, landed writing assignments with, and/or have had their scripts optioned/bought by companies that include:

Meridian Artists, CAA, Zero Gravity Management, Recon Literary, Amazon, First Point Entertainment, Gersh, Industry Entertainment, Kersey Management, Gotham Group, DMG Entertainment, Schemers Entertainment, Plattform, Hopscotch Pictures, Bellevue Productions, and more!

The Top Tier Program is for writers who exhibit a mastery of the scripted page, pitching fundamentals, and network relationship building who are ready to make screenwriting a career.
