We're excited about the launch of Roadmap Authors!

In four years, Roadmap Writers has mapped the road to success for over 125 screenwriters. Now, we're bringing that same dedication and passion to authors. 

This exciting free panel will host book reps to cover everything you want to know about how to nab a rep. 

This hour long panel will cover questions on how to best approach agents, what your query letter should look like and advice on pitching. 

Also, come in with questions for our live Q&A portion!

Agent Cassandra Rodgers

After a long career in finance, Cassandra Rodgers decided to pursue her love of literature by getting involved with running a literary festival. Organizing panels, looking after authors and managing promotions paved the way to her current career as an agent. She joined The Rights Factory in 2013, where she uses her discerning tastes and sharp business acumen in the service of her clients’ literary careers.

Cassandra has a diverse group of clients from across North America that ranges from debut authors to celebrities. Actively building her list, she is interested in adult literary and commercial women’s fiction. With a degree in History and Political Science from the University of Toronto, she does have a weakness for historical fiction. Non-fiction is another passion – particularly politics, history, science, and finance. Memoirs that can make her laugh, cry, or inspire her are always welcome.
