**Writers must have completed Steps 1-3 , have 3-5+ completed scripts in their portfolio, and have at least 2 well polished screenplays that are market ready.
Step 5: Top Tier
Most of our writers' success stories come from this step. The goal of Top Tier is to get out of Top Tier—and signed or optioned! Our top writers are “on the verge” with multiple polished projects to pitch.
This program includes:
- Private general meeting sessions with top execs who will read your script prior. Choose from among 50+ execs to meet with each month.
- Private pitch sessions with execs. Execs do not get paid to attend and just come to scout for writers.

- Exclusive marketing opportunities available only to Top Tier writers, including priority to pitch to execs new to Roadmap and ongoing marketing efforts from Roadmap's CEO with our list of hundreds of execs.
