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.

WHAT’S UP? YOU LOOKS SHORTER (2)

Here’s the date for the April meet. Will it rain? Who cares! We have indoors as well as outdoors. Sunday 28 April is also World Day for Safety and Health at Work, so we’ll be sure to gaffa tape the fridge extension cord down in front of the bathroom doorway.

And now, to the point of the club: cryptic crosswords. This is a friendly place to learn the ropes and a fun place to be a nerd. Beginners and experts welcome. Coffee, tea, pencils, erasers, biscuits, doughnuts (in line with availability) and crosswords provided.

This month, let’s celebrate the 95th anniversary of the world’s first crossword puzzle book, published by Simon and Schuster in April 1924. We’ll bring an old crossword. Maybe even the ~~oldest crossword~~.

DUCKFACE EXPRESSION CONCEALS A DRUG AND A CARD UP YOUR SLEEVE ✌️ (5,3)

Runs Sunday 28 April, 11am–3pm, at The Good Copy, 19–21 Johnston Street, Collingwood. Arrive anytime. Newcomers, friends and pets welcome. Free!
