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.

PART OF PEEPSHOW GOES ITCHILY; I ENQUIRE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH (3,4,2)

We’re pleased to announce the 40th monthly Crossword Club meet. It’s going to be a regular edition, but—optional activity—it’s also going to be a clue-writing bee! We’re putting together a grammar- and punctuation-themed cryptic for The Good Copy Gazette, summer 2019 issue. Bring ur brain.

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.

Runs Sunday 27 January, 11am–3pm, at The Good Copy, 19–21 Johnston Street, Collingwood. Arrive anytime. Free!
