"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 backlash against Twitter, textspeak, emojis, tinder, like buttons and canned responses.

"A mash up of creative writing, mystery, parlour games and low commitment pen pals!"

We now express ourselves through the instant communication of clipart, GIFs, and lols.

The question is, what is being lost because of this?

Dead Letter Club is our answer.

We avoid putting fast food into our bodies so why put this fast, disposable version of connecting and communicating into our minds?

In a world oscillating between the immediacy of social media while extolling the benefits of mindfulness we must do better to be creative and social in this world beyond swiping left/right or tweeting 140 characters.

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!

A tapping and swipe free evening, photos absolutely encouraged.

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

Dead Letter Club is excited to be taking of the Writers Room of the infamous board game cafe and bar, Queen of Spades! Check out what Broadsheet has to say!
