Roadmap's Diversity Initiative CompetitionEnter Now
Prices & Deadlines
Participate in the Pitch Prep Program (Step 1 of our Career Writer Program) for FREE the following month. (i.e September's winner will start the program in October etc.)
Winners will also receive a 30 minute call with Daniela Gonzalez, literary manager at Circle of Confusion. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about the industry and learn how you can best position yourself for success.Lastly, winners will also be invited to participate in a free “Real Talk with Nita” session via Zoom with Roadmap's Access Programs Coordinator, Adquanita Curtis, and an industry executive of color. During this candid session you will be able to chat with Adquanita about your specific goals, and needs, as a writer of color and how we here at Roadmap can best help you achieve these goals. There will also be a guided Q&A session with the guest executive!
For the purposes of this initiative we define diversity as writers of color, writers of the LGBTQ+ community, women writers, writers with disabilities, and writers of any other voice that has historically been marginalized or ignored by the entertainment industry.
** Writers may submit only once each month. **
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).
Applications that do not include the one-page statement will not be considered.
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!
Roadmap truly wants the winning recipient to get the most out of the program. For that reason, winners are expected to attend each session and complete all assignments to the fullest of their ability. Writers who fail to complete any assignment or attend any of the classes during the first two weeks of the program will forfeit their spot for the remainder of the program.
