** Writers may submit only once each month. **
This program is for diverse screenwriters 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 defines "diverse" as anyone belonging to a group whose voice has traditionally been marginalized in Hollywood, particularly BIPOC, AAPI, LGBTQIA+, women over 45, and Disabled.
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.

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.
We do not accept updated drafts or revised statements. Please review your entry for accuracy prior to submitting.
