The first step in our Career Writer Program is the Pitch Prep Program, where writers hone their written & verbal pitch, mold their brand, and get prepared to properly market their material!
So you're finally getting the hang of this writing thing - it's all starting to come together. But when it comes time to pitch it, your amazing story is not coming through - or worse, you freeze up and have no idea what to say - and you can't figure out why. Roadmap understands your frustration, which is why we've put together a Pitch Prep Program that revolves all around pitching and how to master your pitch!
Train with the Roadmap Team and working industry executives to refine your pitch and figure out what's breaking down in translation and how to build it up!
In this One-Month Program, You Will:
- Learn how to structure your pitch
- Learn the importance of tone and voice in your pitch
- Practice with professionals who can help you identify where your pitch is weakest - and strongest
- Gain confidence for the hot seat!
"Pitch Prep is an excellent way to jump into the deep end, knowing that the lifeguards of RW won’t let you drown. The RW staff is extremely encouraging, the industry contacts are bona fide and real world in their feedback, and the participants are definitely a cut above. Well worth doing if you are seriously committed to upping your game and unlocking the magic of your work for those who don’t yet know it." - Jerry P. (took Pitch Prep in August)
