We all want to be successful, but the path to success can feel so long and daunting that many of us don't know where to start. Or we're sitting around waiting for the perfect rep/producer/network to somehow find us and launch our careers. 

But the world has changed. 

These days, it takes more than a great screenplay to be successful in this business—it takes unrelenting business-minded discipline. Daily. Screenwriters must be more than a unique creative voice—you must also be savvy and well-versed on the changes in TV & film and the people behind them. Understanding the business of show business is an essential skill for every screenwriter. Because business... is The Name of the Game

At Roadmap, we know this can be time-consuming. That's why we've created The Name of the Game: Trade Talk with Roadmap's Director of Writer Outreach James Moorer, an eye-opening monthly webinar covering what you can and should be doing right now to further your career and the most important industry updates. Get industry insights and tips that give you a tactical advantage and keep you on the pulse of the screen trade without sacrificing time for your craft.
