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 TOP TWO YODELLERS OFFER A CURSORY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AT BEST (2)

Crossword Club invites you to this, our 41st meet-up. Did you know that 'meet-up' in that sentence was a nounified phrasal verb? I'm a nounified phrasal verb on a Sunday morning, which is why Crossword Club is a very low-key event. There is coffee; there are doughnuts; there are pencils; there are erasers and a bathroom. It's just like your place, but on Johnston Street, in an empty scaffolding warehouse. This club is beginner friendly, expert friendly and newcomer friendly. Cryptics provided.
