Here is the class breakdown:
Week #1 - Writers will submit to exec their synopsis and outline for review prior to the first week's class. Your exec will give verbal feedback this week.
Week #2 - Writers will submit to exec their revised outline (think of this as a fleshed out, annotated table of contents) prior to this week’s class. Exec will make sure each writer's outline is structurally sound by giving another round of notes to fine tune.
Week #3 - Writers will submit to exec the first chapter (or two, if desired) prior to this week’s class. Exec will give feedback in this class.
Week #4 - Writers will submit a revised chapter one and as many pages as they can write prior to this week's class for this exec to review and give verbal feedback on in this class.
Week #5 - Writers will submit as many pages as they can write prior to this week's class for this exec to review and give feedback on in this class.
Week #6 - Writers will submit as many pages as they can write prior to this week's class for this exec to review and give feedback on in this class.
Code of Conduct: Roadmap Writers programs are for training purposes only. These execs are working with us independently from their respective companies. Developing material with an executive does not mean you are developing material for their company. Please do not ask the execs to read your material or for business/personal contact info. Keep all conversations focused on feedback. Any writer making an executive feel uncomfortable or pressured to request material will result in instant termination from the program and prevent the writer from working with Roadmap again. Unless otherwise instructed, do not contact the executive by phone or email outside the scope of the program.
