Chicago Screenwriters Network holds monthly events intended to educate and empower area screenwriters, as well as network them with local talent and crew to see their written word complete the journey from script to screen. Our community pillars are education, empowerment, hands-on workshopping, and networking.

A bi-monthly(ish), online hour-long series that features guests from all across the screenwriting and filmmaking industry. Guests have included local success stories, Oscar and Golden Globe winners! Join us from anywhere in the world for presentations, discussions, and interviews with industry professionals.
An online hour-long writers workshop presented quarterly(ish) that focuses on a single aspect in your writing. Whether you are a seasoned writer or just starting out, writing a full-length feature or just brainstorming something new, participants are encouraged to have fun and take risks with their work.
Monthly events are typically hosted on the second Sunday of the month at Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro unless otherwise noted. Events include, but are not limited to: guest talks from industry experts, quarterly table reads, writers workshops, screenwriting and filmmaking presentations, and script-to-screen spotlights. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
