Marketing Intensive is Step 2 of the Career Writer Program. Writers must complete Step 1: Pitch Prep Program (or Pitch Prep LITE) prior to diving in. Writers must complete Steps 1-4 to be considered for our Top Tier Program.
If you have completed the Pitch Prep Program, be sure to be signed in to your site account and you will be allowed to sign up. Any issues, contact Dorian.
You may petition to skip Pitch Prep and go directly into Intensive by sending an email to email@example.com explaining why you feel you do not need to do Pitch Prep, including a 2-pg. written pitch for one of your projects and a 5-min. recorded verbal pitch of the same project.
Step 2: Marketing Intensive
Roadmap's Marketing Intensive is designed to guide your writing journey and prevent you from throwing spaghetti against the wall just hoping something sticks. At Roadmap, we believe in putting writers in real-world environments and showing them what the industry is really like.
This program helps you strategize and create a solid path to success. Each session is taught by different working industry professionals to ensure each writer gets in front of as many execs as possible and learn what executives really look for in their pages, pitches, and general meetings.
Full of immersive opportunities with executives and private general meetings, writers are put to the test in numerous rooms with more execs than ever! This is a fast-paced, fully immersive experience to push you from good in the room to owning the room.
Walk out of this program with confidence in your pitch & general meeting skills, and a personal brand & bio poised to position you ahead of the competition!
"One of the best things about Roadmap for us, beyond getting to meet a whole bunch of great people, is the confidence we're gaining while we learn the finer (and sometimes not so fine) points of the industry. Having a supportive place to ask these questions and get input is invaluable." - Graci & Mr. Lee, Writing Team
After registering, your confirmation email will include a link for you to access your syllabus for the program, which will include any prep work & resources, class dates & times, join links, assignments, and other instructions.
All interactive sessions are conducted face-to-face via video conferencing software Zoom. While the ability to call in by phone does exist, we strongly recommend taking full advantage of the face-to-face nature of these programs, so you should plan to attend your sessions in front of a computer or stationary tablet at a desk or table in a well-lit room.
