Tired of Twitter, textspeak, emojis, tinder, like buttons and canned responses?
"In an age like ours, which is not given to letter-writing, we forget what an important part it used to play in people's lives" - Anatole Broyard
A mash up of creative writing, mystery, parlour games and low commitment pen pals!
We now express ourselves through the instant communication of clipart, GIFs, and lols. My question is, what is being lost because of this?
Dead Letter Club is my answer.
“Dead Letter Club was one of the most genuinely creative, powerful and beautiful experiences I've ever taken part in.” Gemma Jones, Craft Victoria
Sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your spit seals the envelope. Thoughts revealed through the flourishes and flow of the pen, the texture and lingering scent on the paper.
NEVER FEAR. We have hundreds of prompt cards for those awkward moments of writers block!
