Upcoming Events

Gordy HoffmanOn Sunday, August 9th, our guest speaker will be Gordy Hoffman, founder of the Bluecat Screenplay Competition, who will join us from Los Angeles via Skype. (Gordy had originally planned to be in Chicago on Aug. 8-9 to conduct workshops for the Bluecat Screenplay Competition; he cancelled the workshops -- and his trip to Chicago -- after accepting a writing assignment.)

What's New

CSN's September 2015 monthly meeting will honor the organization's founding in 1995 with a 20th Anniversary Celebration. CSN's co-founder (and our most distinguished alumnus) Edward A. Bernero will be our featured speaker. (We are awaiting confirmation from the other co-founders, Christiana Miller and Kenneth Mader, as to whether they'll be returning to Chicago from Los Angeles to join Ed as our guests of honor.) More details are forthcoming, but in the meantime save the date of Sunday, September 13th, for an historic evening with lots of fun, prizes, and surprises!
