About

The Good Copy is a writing school, a publisher and a shop for word people.

We think a lot about writing. If you do too, or you feel as if you should, or you’re not sure what’s going on—welcome. We run classes and workshops, sell books and zines, and proudly host Collingwood’s longest-running crossword club.

GIVE A DIRECTION TO PUSHA T AT RANDOM AND GET A QUESTION ABOUT YOUR DAY (5,2)

As if we wouldn't have a December meet. What better time than the Sunday before New Year's for sitting at a table confused and surrounded by snacks.

This club is beginner friendly, expert friendly and newcomer friendly. Coffee, tea, pencils, erasers, biscuits, doughnuts (in line with availability), cryptic crosswords and moral support are provided.

ALSO, LONGNECKS (PARTLY MY CUE TO LEAVE) (2,4)

Runs Sunday 30 December, 11am–3pm, at The Good Copy, 19–21 Johnston Street, Collingwood. Arrive anytime. Free!
