Dead Letter Club

the slow communication revolution

Tired of Twitter, txtspeak and emojis?  

A mash-up of creative writing, mystery parlour games and low commitment pen-pals.

Creative Writing via the lost art of letter writing.

Pick up a pen and let the ink flow.

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. 

We ask, what might be lost because of this? Dead Letter Club is our answer.  Pick up a pen and let the ink flow.

“Dead Letter Club was one of the most genuinely creative, powerful and beautiful experiences I've ever taken part in.”  Gemma Jones, Craft Victoria

DLC is a high concept game played by YOU.  A response and a call to restore balance to lives being lived through a little screen and a scrolling thumb.  
Existing in dedication to the written word through creative letter writing.  
Assume your nom de plume and through our secret postal service you will correspond with others in the room over the evening remaining unknown to each other. 

Until the end that is.  

Sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationery, 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. Come along and correspond with a stranger in the room.

These evenings are in dedication to the written word through creative letter writing.

NEVER FEAR! We have hundreds of prompt cards for those awkward moments of writers’ block! 

“Dead Letter Club is an evening of unbridled imagination and creative wonder convened under the watchful eye of a badass witch babe.”  Kat Skull, STREAT
