"Wild Child is a cracking good read that just flows, and there are numerous teaching points one can glean from it to demonstrate pace to the writers," says Perry Gamsby, leader of the course. "As well, characters, conflict, dialogues and plot are all in there doing their bit to make it a great story."
The Australian writing course is highly innovative. Its aim is to not just advise writers as to how to write, but to publish their work in a book they can then use how they wish. "So far we have had two courses graduate," Gambsy says, "with the first producing 'The Rorschach Collective' and the second 'The Rorschach Continuum.'
