Rachel Towns, St John’s Regional College Dandenong

Rachel Towns presented a workshop on ‘Wild Writing’ in which she used the DEAD technique (description, emotion, action, dialogue) to develop the idea of moving between different elements of writing features to produce stronger and more interesting creative writing pieces.
