Tired of Twitter, txtspeak and emojis?

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

"People consume now more than ever in the history of the world. We eat more, we listen to more music, and we consume more information.

However, we've also learned enough about consumerism to know it won't make us happy.

Writing gives us a chance to turn the tides on consumerism. Rather than consume more, we can make something."

We use Twitter, text, snapchat, emojis, tinder, like buttons and canned responses as a way to communicate our thoughts and feelings.

What can be the result of this instant communication on our relationships, memories and creativity?

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.

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.

INSTAGRAM @dead_letter_club *****PLEASE NOTE***** It is important for participants to arrive by start time - 7pm and stay for the course of the correspondence. Don't ditch your pen-pal by leaving early. Doors at 6.30pm. Writing from 7pm - 9pm (ish).
