Upcoming Events


Dear Chicago Screenwriters Network community, 

Chicago Screenwriters Network (CSN) is on hiatus as the board addresses the tasks of rejuvenating the group and presenting compelling programming & membership services beginning in January 2015. 

A planning meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 18 (6:30-8:30pm) at Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro, 3905 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, IL  60613. The meeting is open to anyone interested in helping the CSN board define its purpose and agenda for the foreseeable future. There is no cost to attend (everyone will be responsible for their own food/drink orders) and your participation will not obligate you to any further commitments; however, if you would consider a role as a CSN board member (or otherwise assisting with the organization's efforts in some capacity), this meeting is an ideal opportunity to voice your interest.

RSVPs for the Tue. 11/18 meeting are greatly appreciated via email to  [If you cannot attend but have suggestions to offer for the meeting, please e-mail them to this address.]

Please check the CSN website periodically for updates on our plans for 2015 (and beyond).

Thanks for your support,
The Board of the Chicago Screenwriters Network

P.S. -- As a courtesy to those who purchased a CSN annual membership in 2014, it will be extended through the end of 2015.
