Professional Learning for Teachers

For some ideas on the sort of workshops and talks I have presented in the past, check out my information page.


It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Cate on two occasions in our school in the last two years.  She delighted and entertained attendees at our Literary Lunch in 2017, answering questions and sharing details of her work as an author to date.  Most recently, Cate provided a mentor role to a student who is passionate about writing and seeking advice about writing practice and entering the profession.  Cate was generous with her time, sharing examples of her writing and editing process, sharing knowledge of the publishing industry, and answering every question the student had for her.


Cate’s teaching experience informs the way she approaches her visits.  Communication is ongoing to ensure that her visit meets both educational outcomes and requirements for the visit/event itself, making planning a breeze.  Cate’s dealings with teaching staff is warm and professional and she has an instant rapport with students, making them feel at ease.


I would highly recommend Cate as a visiting author and as a mentor to up and coming writers.

Having Cate Whittle professionally assess my manuscript was a very positive, reassuring and helpful experience.

Cate took the time to highlight the strengths and accomplishments of my work, while gently suggesting ways that I could further polish and improve my manuscript.

I highly recommend Cate to provide manuscript assessments and would not hesitate to use her excellent service again.
