It's time to roll up your sleeves and begin developing that idea you've had kicking around in your head into a script. Before you put fingers on keys to write your next masterpiece, take some time to really develop your idea, story, and characters. What is this show really about?

To answer all this and more, Roadmap is thrilled to welcome Glenn Geller to the webinar stage!
