Chicago Screenwriters Network 20th Anniversary Celebration Sun., Sept. 13, 2015, Featuring Co-Founder Edward Berno (Criminal Minds/Third Watch)


Join Chicago Screenwriters Network on Sunday, September 13th! We’re throwing a party – which doubles as a mini-fundraiser – with a very special guest: Edward A. Bernero, who co-founded the group in 1995 then went on to create the TV series Third Watch (NBC, 1999-2005) and later became Executive Producer of Criminal Minds (CBS, 2005-2013); Ed wrote and/or directed dozens of episodes between both series, and is currently creator and Executive Producer of the international TV series Crossing Lines.


Admission for all attendees is $20.00 in advance or $25.00 at the door. Advance reservations will be sold until 2:00pm the day of the event; after that deadline, tickets may be purchased at the door for $25.00 if the event has not sold out.

Sunday, September 13, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CDT)

Attend Event

CSN is organizing a silent auction with some terrific prizes for the winning bidders (winning  bids may pay in cash, check, or credit/debit at the end of the evening). We will also conduct a 50/50 raffle during the event, so bring some cash for a chance to win half the take! (We also have a few surprises in store for attendees, but you won’t find out about those unless you attend the event.)

CSN’s annual members are invited to arrive at 5:00pm for a one-hour private reception with Ed; doors open for non-members/general public at 6:00pm (A one-year CSN membership can be purchased on our website for only $40.00 through December 31, 2015)

Come on Down and Let’s celebrate!!! We look forward to seeing you at this historic event and celebrating 20 years of Chicago Screenwriters Network (and marking the start of our next 20 years)!
