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.

HOW DYSTOPIA BURIES THE FRIENDLIEST OF GREETINGS (5)

We return to regular programming at the Crossword Club November meet. What could happen as we embark upon our fourth year? The same stuff, probably: crosswords, coffee, tea, nerds, a cake if someone brings one.

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

Attendees are additionally encouraged to download HQ Trivia so we can make another team attempt. After winning US$1.91 at the October meet, we need to compound our riches.

PUTS ENERGY INTO AWFULLY HEROIC SIGN-OFF (7)

Runs Sunday 25 November, 11am–3pm, at The Good Copy, 19–21 Johnston Street, Collingwood. Arrive anytime. Free!
