Date and Time: Tuesday, 12/4 @ 6:00pm - 7:00pm PT
This session is great for writers with features & TV projects of all genres!
Roadmap Writers is always looking for ways to get our writers in front of super high profile executives to receive the best feedback possible on their projects.
We created Virtual Meet Ups to allow a small group of 6 writers to pitch in a roundtable setting, ask questions and build a relationship with vetted executives.
Each writer starts with a 5-minute pitch and then it'll open up to a Q&A with the participating executive so you can ask any questions you have on pitching techniques, how to best position a script in the marketplace and the industry overall!
