Roadmap's Diversity Initiative Competition
July 2019 season now closed

About

The lack of diversity in Hollywood has been at the forefront of the national conversation for awhile now. At Roadmap, we want to do our part to help bring more diversity to the big screen (and the small!), and for us, that starts with the screenwriters.

That's why we are proud to sponsor the Roadmap Writers Diversity Tribute!

We launched this initiative in memory of Roadmap Writer Coletta Preacely-Garcia, who passed suddenly in 2016. Coletta was an extremely hardworking writer who was always working to better her craft, tirelessly writing, rewriting, and taking advantage of every opportunity presented to her to gain skills, make connections, and improve her screenplays.

This is a monthly competition so writers who are not selected in any given month, may apply again.

Benefits

Each month, we will be selecting one diverse writer to participate in the Pitch Prep Program (Step 1 of our Career Writer Program) for FREE. 

Rules

*This program is for writers with at least one completed original Feature or TV Pilot who are ready to tackle the Marketing aspect of their career and start getting their work out there!

To apply for this Initiative, please submit a one-page statement in PDF format highlighting your diverse background and why you would be a valuable and hardworking member of the Career Writer Program, AND a writing sample (feature or pilot).

Writers who will be considered further will be contacted by the Roadmap Team for a virtual interview.
