Announcing the 2020 Write Start Competition - Top 25!

Roadmap is excited to announce the Top 25 manuscripts for our 2020 Write Start Competition!

As we previously mentioned, the caliber of writing was so incredible that we have also expanded our semifinalist selections from 10 to 25! The Write Start Competition is here to help author's overcome some of the challenges many writers face as they break into the publishing world. This year's finalist judges include companies like Cyle Young Literary, CAA, Verve, Transatlantic Agency, and Five Otter Literary.

Next up we'll announce our Top 5 finalists on March 29th.

And now we're pleased to announce our Top 25!
