ALSO, one of my favourite little Newcaslte haunts, Bird In the Hand Distro, is running a letter writing club on the first Friday of each month at 6pm. Pretty sweet, huh? Here's the run down on what will occur:
We welcome you in through our bright red front door and you find a comfy place to sit down for a little while. You gather some supplies: a pen, some paper, a typewriter, a cup of tea, a biscuit. You write a friend or a relative or your crush a letter using that somewhat anachronistic art of letterwriting. You probably have fond memories of using this skill a little when you were younger and maybe you haven’t used it in awhile. Writing some a personalised letter is one of the most heartwarming, communicative experiences & we’d like to get you back into the routine of letterwriting (it’s way funner if you’re part of a club!). Please come to this first meeting of the Letter Writing Club…
The first Letter Writing Club meet will be on the 4th of December, though sadly I will be in cold comfortable Tasmania at that time. If you happen to be in Newcastle (I know a lot of you are far far away from here), you should pop in;



I hope it's a lot cooler wherever you are today!
