Exclusive to our most vetted writers, Top Tier is the pinnacle of the Career Writer Program and is where the majority of our success stories are made.
Writers must complete Steps 1-4 of the Career Writer Program to be considered for Top Tier.

Please review all of the below options carefully before making your Top Tier Program selection for the month. 

Option #1: Read & Meets – Select SIX execs for private 20-min. Zoom meetings.

  • Each exec reads the first 15 pages of one of your scripts and a one-page synopsis of the story prior to your meeting.
  • After the meeting, the exec will complete a feedback form and indicate if they wish to stay in touch with you and read more of your work.

Option #2: Matchmakers – Select TWO Matchmaker Execs.

  • For each Matchmaker, you'll send your script to the exec at least a week before the session and they will read the script in full before meeting with you to discuss notes for 20-25 mins. in a roundtable setting.
  • You'll have a week to edit your script based on the notes and return the marked-up script to the exec for review before the second roundtable where the exec will provide you with feedback on your rewrite.
  • You may elect to send the same script to both Matchmaker execs or a different script to each (but make sure you allow yourself sufficient time to complete your rewrites).
  • Matchmakers a) show managers and execs how you take notes (which is a HUGE deal), b) give you more time with execs, and c) give those execs an opportunity to keep working with you after the sessions. Of course, there's no guarantee that every writer will be chosen to keep working with each exec, but it definitely will give you a really focused goal for the month and help you to elevate your material and help to build relationships with your selected execs. 

Option #3: General Meeting Track – Select THREE execs for private 30-min. Zoom meetings.

  • Your selected execs will read your script in full before the meeting.
  • General Meetings allow you to spend quality one-on-one time with execs. They also give execs the opportunity to get to know more about you and your portfolio and to decide if they would like to read more of your work or progress your project within their company.

Option #4: 6-Week Incubator (2-month program) – Develop a new script with an exec of your choice.

  • Meet with your exec every week in a  roundtable setting to receive feedback on the pages you submitted that week.
  • This is a 6-week Incubator that runs for two consecutive months, so you must sign up for an Incubator in both months.
  • After the incubator concludes in the second month, you'll have a 2-week Matchmaker with another exec to do one more polish on your script. 

All Options include:

  • Regular Check-Ins: You connect with your peers and the Director of our Top Tier Programs in a roundtable setting to discuss your progress and challenges.
  • Targeted Marketing Emails: You'll turn in your list of 50+ target companies and our CEO, Joey Tuccio, will email up to five execs on your behalf.
  • Top Tier Marketing Opportunities: From time to time, Joey will email you details of selected companies' exclusive needs. The subject line will read "Top Tier Marketing."
  • Sunday Webinars: You have access to the 2-3x Live Sunday Webinars (& the recordings) organized each month by Roadmap.
  • You can also participate in weekly Roadmap Writing Sprint Cafes.
How it Works

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. 

Please ensure you are familiar with our Code of Conduct.
