Hello Darling,

Who among your close friends and associates deserves to be invited into the RT "Inner Circle?" Only "Inner Circle" members will be given the opportunity to enter this year's
Hear Me Out New American Monologue Competition early and compete for exclusive prizes and opportunities. Official 2021 Call For Entries goes out on Mother's Day. "Inner Circle" members get a 10-day head start. Studies have shown that people who share information about career opportunties rather than hoarding them tend to win more prizes. Something to do with the electrons that are sent dancing when we act selflessly.

How much you accomplish each year is directly dependent on how you're setting goals and checking progress. When you engage others in your plan of attack rather than relying on privately held benchmarks, new opportunties find their way to you.

Once a month, a small group of artists gather to check themselves on their best practices, organizational systems, career strategies and business accountability. When you begin to devote a serious level of attention to how you get from an idea to a fully-realized piece of work that is seen and loved by many, your career will advance by leaps and bounds. 

Make time each week for benchmark checking and longterm planning. Shepherd your best work into the world with the care and attention to detail it deserves.

3 Hours That Just Might Change Everything

Have you ever wondered what the secret was? What it might be that sends audiences crowding into box office lines for some shows and just forgetting about others? Here's a secret. It has very little to do with what your play or film is about and a lot more to do with how you choose to tell your story.

Now You Draw Us In is Roland's 3-hr introduction to a whole new way of thinking about audience curiosity. The one commodity you cannot afford to ignore is the curiosity that keeps audiences in their seats and coming back for more. This 3-hr interactive workshop is your window in to a new way of harnessing the most important fuel there is.

Now You Draw Us In

Sunday April 18th at 2PM, EST

Registration Deadline: April 6, 2021 at Noon. 

Inner Circle Registration Just $33

Know Your Show on the Deepest Level and You Can Pretty Much Figure Out a Way to Present it Anywhere. The Key Lies in its Heart.

Expanding on the lessons learned during Online Solo.... Join a group of writer-performers all on the same path, developing a solo show which they will perform themselves. 

Admission into this workshop will be by application only. Ten pages of your script submitted. Plus an appearance at one of Roland's Wednesday Gathering Open Mics  to try out 5 minutes of material for a small supportive audience of fellow artists.

This workshop culminates in 4 nights of public showcases of your new show before an audience that includes some of the best minds in the business. Class size limit: 10.

Zoom Box Black Box

Wednesdays 1:30-4PM, EDT 13 weeks starting May 26

If a tree falls in a forest...

Yes. As intimidating as it can sometimes be, forcing ourselves to get up and out in front of new audiences for our material is an essential way we grow as artists. To keep growing you must be in frequent dialogue with your audience.

Join us any Wednesday evening for one hour of 8 or 9 artists sharing work. This is a low-impact supportive environment where it's completely safe to fall on your face and get back up. Start here. And other opportunities will begin to appear on the horizon.

Participation is free to all though if you'd like to make the occasional gift to support the work, there's a button at the bottom of this email you can use for that.

Wednesday Gathering

Every Wednesday at 6:30PM, EST

"The most beneficial aspect of RTOWW is Roland's generosity of spirit and obvious love for writers and their writing. In this oftentimes overly competitive business, it is so nice to feel safe in a room, albeit virtual, where you know the leader truly has your back. Of course there were many helpful pointers and great exercises, but I think the real power of Roland's work is in his willingness and enthusiasm to embrace his fellow artists in service to our own goals for the work."
--Rich Hoehler, actor, playwright & director

A consistent writers workshop where you can bring an idea to first draft or refine something you've been putting on the back burner for way too long. 

The Roland Tec Online Writers Workshop meets three times a month for 6 months and provides writers with a balance of pages read in workshop and full manuscripts read outside of session so that short works and full-length masterpieces all have a shot at catching informed thoughtful feedback, feedback built on one essential question: What is the writer's intent?

Applications for the workshop are now open. Submit by April 30th to get a 20% discount off tuition when you pay in full upfront.
