Why Join:

Chicago Screenwriters Network provides aspiring screenwriters with the resources, education, and network to see their work complete the journey from script to screen. Its member bloc comes from various backgrounds and experience levels. Some have been writing for years; some are just starting out.

CSN's members come from all aspects of the filmmaking process, from directors and producers, to actors and crew. Plus, with our expanded online offerings, you can live anywhere in the world that has reliable wi-fi and be an active member of CSN.

Membership has its privileges:

* Free admission to CSN’s monthly events, both online and in-person.

* Free admission to the annual Chicago Creatives Cocktail Party.

* Open submission to CSN's quarterly Table Reads.

* Discounts from our community partners.

* Suggest topics and guests for Screen Time, our online event series.

* Suggest workshop topics for Unlocked, our online writing workshop.

We are always negotiating new benefits for our members!
