What does Roadmap count as a writer signing?
Our signing numbers reflect only those writers who we directly helped get signed to representation via either a personal Roadmap introduction or through one of our many 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. We also love shouting out (but do not credit ourselves with) subsequent successes & signings outside of Roadmap for writers that either went through our programs and/or we helped get signed to part of their team. On these, you will not find a signing #; instead, there will be a badge reading "Congrats!"
Wow, Roadmap's pretty strict about how your signing numbers are counted!
It's true. We value transparency and integrity. 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 our efforts to be misrepresented by another entity as their own. It’s just the right thing to do.
