How She Did It: A Conversation w/ Jess Carson

Webinars ~ Success Stories Series
Hosted By:
Jess Carson - Roadmap Writers Top Tier Alumna

Let’s face it. There are a million different paths to success. That’s true to some degree for most industries, but even more so for Tinseltown. We get it, and so we understand why it’s important to hear from people who have achieved what you want to achieve. Learn what their obstacles were, how they overcame them, and take what you can from those lessons to apply to your own life.

While it is true that there are as many paths to success as there are people, we can all learn something from how someone else did it. That’s why Roadmap is thrilled to have our lovely alumna Jess Carson back to share her story!

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • Getting started in screenwriting
  • Building your portfolio
  • Networking & meetings
  • Working in the room
  • Audience Q&A!
More about
Jess Carson
Roadmap Writers Top Tier Alumna


Jess Carson is a Los Angeles-based African-America Writer/Director who made her way into filmmaking in her hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas. In 2015, she decided to branch out to hone her skills in more saturated markets - first by way of Brooklyn, NY, where she was hired to write an Off-Broadway musical, ONLY HUMAN, and then settling in Los Angeles, CA in 2018.

Her work spans genres and her focus is on well-rounded, character-driven narratives that resonate with audiences of all demographics as well as those that put society under a lens via undertones of societal commentary.

Currently, Jess is polishing a wide range of projects. Jess is a staff writer on the CW's THE FLASH and is actively working on a gritty, original feature, DEAD RED, with Broken Road Productions. She was included on Tracking Board's 2019 Young and Hungry List.

Jess is represented by Kegan Schell & Lauren Williams at Echo Lake Entertainment.
