What is Roadmap Writers?

Roadmap Writers is an education and training platform for Career Writers ready to make writing a career and looking for a guided path to success. Our programs are hosted by working industry professionals and are designed to empower writers with actionable tools and insights to elevate their craft and cultivate relationships with industry execs. Since 2016, we have helped more than 125 screenwriters sign to representation and countless others get staffed, optioned, or sell their script.

Now, we’re bringing this same dedication and continuity to the publishing world with Roadmap Authors — offering a tiered Career Authors Program modeled after our wildly successful program for screenwriters full of opportunities to train with and learn from book editors and agents, as well as à la carte opportunities. Roadmap is here to advocate for writers of all kinds and help you achieve your career goals.

What makes Roadmap different?

We focus on quality of education rather than quantity of numbers in our programming. We pride ourselves on getting to know each writer individually and doing our best to develop programming that will cater to their individual needs. Because it takes so much investment, time, and care to champion and launch a writer’s professional career, we focus our work on Career Writers over hobbyists. Roadmap is the only writing organization that has a fully guided step-by-step program that will help you build an incredibly strong foundation for lasting career success. Each program is taught by passionate working editors, agents, and other execs with a proven track record.

Who teaches our classes?

Our instructors are all working executives and industry professionals from the publishing and literary world. By learning from working execs, you are able to benefit from their real-world, hands-on experience and knowledge of the current marketplace. We have relationships with a number of top companies in the industry and work with executives that are highly vetted and genuinely invested in helping authors grow.

Where do our classes take place?

Our programs take place 100% online (most utilize video conferencing software ZOOM). You can participate from anywhere in the world! The only requirements are a camera, a microphone, and a decent internet connection. The online classroom also provides for high-quality recordings of each class so that you can review the session at a later date.
