Upcoming Events

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

A planning meeting was held on Tuesday, November 18th at which eighteen (18) CSN members shared their concerns regarding the mission of the organization and the initiatives it would like to see the newly-reconstituted board of directors pursue for the foreseeable future; many others have provided input via email. The board meets on Tuesday, December 9th to begin the process of implementing the suggestions, priorities, etc. expressed at the 11/18 meeting.

If you were unable to attend the 11/18 meeting or if you're new to the organization and would like to chime in with your suggestions, please email them to us at

Please check the CSN website periodically for updates on our plans, including the schedule of monthly meetings for 2015 -- our 20th anniversary year!

Thanks for your support, and happy holidays!

The Board of Directors -- 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.
