"While Roadmap connects writers with many fine execs, Janet is far and away my favorite. Her feedback is always the right mix of supportive yet revision-oriented; I always come away with incredibly valuable insights and new ways of seeing my writing. Her professional yet friendly personality is also top-notch." - Jill S.

What to Expect

It's important for every writer to have a solid script AND to show executives that they are collaborative and professional to work with. These 2-week Matchmaker Clinics are designed to give writers an opportunity to develop a solid script and collaborate with an industry professional. Review the list of available executives and select the one that best fits your script!

The executive will read your script and in an online roundtable with only 4 other writers, you will have 25 minutes to receive notes from your executive, get to know them and them get to know you. 

Then you will have a week between sessions to revise your pages and in the second roundtable, you'll have another 25-minute meeting to talk about the submitted revisions.

Matchmaker Clinics meet online via virtual classroom utilizing video conferencing software ZOOM.
