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 work-shopping, and networking.
Events include, but are not limited to: guest talks from industry experts, table reads, writers workshops, and script-to-screen spotlight. Guest speakers typically look at one or more aspects of the writing process and/or filmmaking process and offer their insight, as well as Q&A from our attendees. Writers workshops bring together writers and on-camera talent to craft original pieces for the screen. Quarterly table reads feature scripts written by CSN members, performed by local Chicago actors, and feature a feedback session after each read. In our script-to-screen series, we look and scenes in film and dissect how the pages of the scrip became what was filmed.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, CSN has cancelled its April event. We are working on alternative and online programming in the meantime. Stay safe! Wash your hands!
The Chicago Screenwriters Network holds events monthly typically at Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro unless otherwise noted. Doors open typically at 5:30 for cocktails and networking, with events beginning at 6 pm. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Please respect our members and guests. Unless the event is networking in nature, CSN does not allow outside solicitation of any kind during our educational or workshop events, including asking for business, soliciting funds or volunteers, publicizing
meetings or events, or requesting funding. Please contact us if your group would like assistance from our board, members or guests.
