Signed, sealed, delivered
There’s no doubt about it; we find writing cathartic. Putting pen to paper or fingers to keys and scribing your thoughts, feelings, or every fibre of emotion worth noting is a very healthy exercise.
It’s been a roller coaster ride over the past few months. COVID-19 has been as rude to us as Kim was to Sharon that time she thought she’d met her husband through a mail order bride website (it’s an easy mistake to make).
The pandemic has affected us all differently, and writing provides the perfect therapy for recording your experience. From celebrating the high highs or taking a moment to reflect upon the lows.
Whatever your pandemic experience, we invite you to share it with us, to share with the nation, as part of Australia Post’s Dear Australia initiative.
Developed as a way to mark this extraordinary moment in our nation’s history, Dear Australia invites all Aussies to post a letter to a national mailbox created by Australia Post, containing their unique COVID-19 related thoughts, experiences and stories. The letterbox will remain open until 18 August 2020, and eligible letters will be kept by the National Archives of Australia for future generations to read.
We love the idea so much that we’ve decided to play postie for our guests, meaning that during your next stay, you’ll find a Midnight Hotel postcard, featuring artist Tom Adair’s neon infused artwork, waiting for you in your room. Simply hand over your postcard to our reception team when you check out and they’ll post it on your behalf.
Now, if you find yourself sitting down to write and the words just aren’t flowing, take some inspiration from this guy (you’re welcome), and try penning down your thoughts in the form of COVID-19 themed lyrics. Bonus points if you can avoid the use of the word ‘unprecedented’ (every media outlet in existence – take note).
Non-guests, we’ve got you covered too, with our signature postcards available for purchase via the online Midnight Store (sans the personal postie).
Guest and non-guest alike, the team at Midnight Post Office Hotel looks forward to hearing from you soon.
