Chicago Screenwriters Network (CSN) is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization


A one-year membership in Chicago Screenwriters Network is priced at $75.00/year; student memberships (high-school, college, or post-graduate) are $50.00/year.  (Validated proof of current enrollment/registration is required to be eligible for the student rate.) Memberships are valid for one (1) year from the date they are purchased.

Membership privileges include:

  • free admission to CSN’s monthly meetings (2nd Sun. of each month) — normally $10.00 in advance or $20.00 at the door for each meeting;
  • admission to CSN’s member-only workshops on the 4th or final Saturday of the month (late morning/early afternoon). Non-CSN members are not permitted to attend these workshops on an à la carte basis, as they can the 2nd Sunday monthly meetings;
  • free admission to Chicago Creatives Cocktail Party (“CCCP”) networking events; beginning in 2016, an admission price will be charged for attendees who are not members of a CCCP organization (such as CSN, IFP/Chicago, Chicago Filmmakers, etc.);
  • a limited-edition CSN coffee mug (a $10.00 value);
  • CSN members are entitled to purchase an annual membership to IMDb PRO at 30% off of the standard $149.99 price (i.e., a $45.00 value);
  • a 20% discount on Final Draft 9 purchases and upgrade products (not including Big Break screenwriting contest entries);
  • a 10% discount on any purchase from The Writers Store. [Products already on sale or combined in packages will not qualify — everything else is fair game.]
  • CSN members are entitled to a 10% discount (sometimes more) on selected CSN activities, events, full-day/weekend seminars, etc.

Additional benefits of membership will be announced as they are secured throughout the year.

The CSN coffee mug is a premium gift we give to all those who purchase new memberships (i.e., renewals do not receive one); new members have the option of picking up a mug at the next CSN monthly meeting they attend, or else pay to have it shipped to them (postage = $5.65).
