Get ready for spooky season with Roadmap and join us for our first ever ScreamWriters' Conference! This conference features panels, pitch roundtables and workshops focused on genre projects and writers. For purposes of this conference, genre means: horror, sci fi, action, thriller, fantasy and any variations of them (i.e. horror comedy, sci fi drama). 

During our previous conference, a writer got signed as a direct result of the pitch roundtables - so you don't want to miss this opportunity! 

We will announce the winner of our Greenlights Challenge during the conference. 

A Conference Badge Includes 
  • One Workshop 
  • Two Pitch Roundtables 
  • All panels 

Pitch in a Verbal Pitch Roundtable (+$25) 

In virtual roundtables limited to only 6 people, each writer will have 5 minutes to practice their pitch with an exec that specializes in the genre(s) you write in . The pitch should be 2-3 minutes, leaving time for the exec to provide verbal feedback. 

The host of each Roundtable will select one writer to advance to the Pitch Finale. 

Roundtable options and instructions on how to sign up will be available in September.

Add an Additional Small-Group Workshop (+$50)

In these 1-hour workshops, writers will get personalized feedback on one screenwriting element, including loglines, tonal comps, bio, opening pages and written pitch. Workshops will also include specific craft and business-related topics. Each workshop will be hosted by an exec that specializes in the genre(s) you write in and will be limited to only 6 writers. 

Workshop options and instructions on how to sign up will be available in September. 

Add a Private First 15 Consultation with an Exec of Your Choice 

The exec of your choice will read the first 15 pages of your screenplay, then conduct a 15-min. private story notes call with you to help polish your opening pages. 

First 15 options and instructions on how to sign up will be available in September.
