Here at Roadmap, we're always looking for ways for our writers to flex their creative muscles and get their work out there in new and interesting ways. And what better way to do that than write a play? Not only are plays some of the oldest forms of storytelling, but they're very writer centric and a great avenue to display your dialogue and scene work. But what goes into creating a play? What do you need to keep in mind? 

Well aspiring playwrights, tune into this webinar and find out! 

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:
