Success Stories

What does Roadmap count as a writer signing?

Our numbers reflect only those writers who we directly helped to get signed either by a personal Roadmap introduction or through one of our many Roadmap programs. We don’t pad the numbers by doubling-up on writing duos; if a writing team gets signed we only count that as one signing. If a writer who is part of our community gets signed outside of Roadmap, we’re equally excited for them and offer them our heartfelt congratulations on our blog, but do not credit ourselves with the signing.

Wow, you guys are pretty strict about how you count your signing numbers.

I know right?! We value transparency. We know how much work goes into helping a writer land representation. We don’t want to misrepresent the success a writer achieved with the direct help of someone else and likewise would hate for all of the efforts we put in to be misrepresented by another entity as their own. It’s just the right thing to do.
