"In an age like ours, which is not given to letter-writing, we forget what an important part it used to play in people's lives" - Anatole Broyard
A mashup of creative writing, mystery, parlour games and low commitment pen pals.
It is now standard to express ourselves through the immediacy of emojis, GIFs, and lols. Communicating in sentences, phone calls and letters is becoming a thing of the past.
We ask, what might be lost because of this? Dead Letter Club is our answer.
“Dead Letter Club was one of the most genuinely creative, powerful and beautiful experiences I've ever taken part in.”Gemma Jones, Craft Victoria
Sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your spit seals the envelope. Thoughts revealed through the flourishes and flow of the pen, the texture and lingering scent on the paper.
These evenings are in dedication to the written word through creative letter writing.
Come along, create a persona, and write a letter. Through our special delivery service you will correspond with an unknown person in the room!
The correspondence continues throughout the evening with the aid of our own special delivery service.
This is the creative communication revolution!
NEVER FEAR! We have hundreds of prompt cards for those awkward moments of writers block!
What better way to write then with the aid of locally made wine. Join us at Melbourne's only people powered urban winery, NOSIY RITUAL for wines and written words on Wednesday January 24 2018.
