talks and workshops

Dee’s themed workshops for all ages include Heroes & Villains, and From Portrait to Prose (using paintings and photographs as symbols and story devices).

Dee can also help students make book trailers, and develop anthologies.

She’s passionate about encouraging reading and writing, and her blog has career and writing tips for students.


In 2021 Yarrawonga College P-12 was lucky enough to have Dee White work with all of our Prep to Year 8 students during her 4 week residency. Dee planned and presented engaging lessons that catered for each year level and she provided a variety of resources to support all of our student writers.

Dee helped all students see the value of their unique ideas and she was able to inspire even our most reluctant writers to create stories they were proud of. Dee ran extension workshops to develop the skills of our more capable writers, as well as sessions for the teachers.

The impact of having an actual author in the classrooms was profound. Dee piqued the interest of all students and helped them see that they too were writers. All students displayed a more positive attitude towards writing and they all produced stories they were proud of. With Dee’s help, these stories were turned into year level anthologies so our students now have the honour of being ‘published authors’.

Dee was extremely easy to work with and she readily adapted her program to suit the changes that inevitably occur in schools (including a 5-day snap lockdown!). All teachers were impressed with Dee’s ability to tailor her presentations to engage and inspire such a wide range of ages and I would not hesitate to recommend her to work with other schools, both primary and secondary.
We hope to have Dee back to our school again as the experience was such a positive one for all involved.
Thanks to Dee White and Creative Victoria for providing our students and teachers with an unforgettable experience.
