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.
