A mashup of creative writing, mystery, parlour games and low commitment pen pals.

DLC is a response and a call to restore balance to lives being lived through a little screen and a scrolling thumb.

"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

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 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.

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

Come along and correspond with a stranger in the room!

NEVER FEAR! Writers Block cards are on hand for the moments of stuckness.
