"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 Brossard

Pick up a pen and let the ink flow.

An evening where writing, mystery, parlour games and low commitment pen pals collide.

It is now standard to express ourselves through the immediacy of emojis, GIFs, and lols.

We ask, what might be lost because of this? Dead Letter Club is our 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

DLC is a high concept parlour game played by YOU.

A response, and a call, to restore balance to lives being lived through a little screen and a scrolling thumb.

Assume your nom de plume and through our secret postal service you will correspond with others in the room over the evening remaining unknown to each other.

Until the end that is.

NEVER FEAR! We have hundreds of prompt cards for those awkward moments of writers’ block!

“Dead Letter Club is an evening of unbridled imagination and creative wonder convened under the watchful eye of a badass witch babe.”
Kat Skull, STREAT
