Virtual Open Pitch Night

Director of Writer Outreach @ Roadmap Writers

Get your pitching practice in for FREE and for FUN at Roadmap's Virtual Open Pitch Night!

Join us for a chance to pitch your project to a digital room of peers under the added pressures of a limited amount of time!

The 10 lucky pitching participants will be chosen using a random name generator. Everyone present before the first pitch of the night will be put on the list that qualifies them for possibly pitching. After each pitch, a name will be randomly generated from that list. That writer will be put in the "hot seat" and given 6 minutes (maximum!) to pitch their project. 

A group of fellow writers and peers will be listening to support (and, hopefully, to learn). At the end of the night, a poll will be sent out to the audience and participants will get to vote on their favorite pitch. 

The winner gets a free private Access Program Pitch with an exec of their choice!

So join us for a casual night of creativity and camaraderie hosted by Roadmap's Director of Writer Outreach Briana Hansen.

*Note, if you are picked and willing to pitch, you understand that this project and idea will be heard by everyone else attending. As such, agreeing to pitch is confirmation that you understand and accept any intellectual property risks involved.
