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.

THE HOUR HAS ARRIVED TO SMITE IT RUDELY (3,4)

Collingwood’s longest-running crossword club returns. Bring friends; bring a date; bring a coat and scarf; bring a heating system and install it. Just kidding—don’t! We’re tough. Crosswords are a winter sport. Having said that, this meet will definitely be inside.

Crossword Club is beginner friendly, expert friendly and nerd friendly. Newcomers are welcome. Indeed, we have a set of clue instructions for cryptic first-timers.

This meet we’re gonna do some grids by Audreus, who died this week aged 97. She was a setter for the Guardian for more than 50 years, and she never used Google. *Salutes*

The bar has been set high for snacks following Sophie’s cheesecake in June, but we promise a baseline of doughnuts, lamingtons, chocolate biscuits and Scotch Fingers. Coffee, tea, pencils, erasers and crosswords are also provided. Arrive any time.

SOUNDS LIKE TWO MATCH-FREE WEEKS. I’M OUTTA HERE. (3,3)

Runs Sunday 22 July, 11am–3pm, at The Good Copy, 19–21 Johnston Street, Collingwood. Entry is free.

This, Collingwood’s longest-running crossword club, prides itself on providing doughnuts, lamingtons, chocolate biscuits, Scotch Fingers, coffee, tea, pencils, erasers and crosswords. Arrive anytime.
