[Screenwriter Series] Spotlight On the Mental Health of the Artist

Rohit Kumar
Staff Writer, 13 REASONS WHY

"Obviously gleaned from personal experience - Rohit's Webinar is a MUST for every film school/creative writing program in the world. Film Schools don't typically touch on the subject of Mental Health, "What To Expect," etc. What Rohit offers is a very practical, exceptionally thorough "How To." An A-Z on everything that's going to come up, happen, become a reality. I love how Rohit gets into specifics on Rejection, Validation, Fear, Being (or becoming) overwhelmed etc. This is the most exhaustive look at industry Mental Health I've ever seen. If we only had Rohit's expertise leaving film school. My entire approach would have been different had there been a-Rohit-Webinar dealing with Mental Health. Spectacular." -Joe K.

Let’s be honest. Being a writer is awesome, exciting, and wonderful in so many ways, but it can also be overwhelming, stressful, anxiety-inducing, and mentally and emotionally difficult. We’ve all been there in one way or another. Whether you’re tearing your hair out in a coffee shop or hyperventilating before a meeting or tearing up after being rejected, the weight of it all hits us sooner or later, in one way or another.

Roadmap is thrilled to have Rohit Kumar here to help talk us through all of the anxiety, uncertainty, and stress that comes with being a writer. And how you can cope with all of these things and still go after your dreams.

This 80-Minute Webinar Covers:

  • Dealing with rejection and handling your mistakes 
  • Introversion vs. Extraversion 
  • The importance of a support system
  • Finding the emotional core of your writer identity 
  • Your growth as a writer
