Overview

A screenplay assessor turned literary editor, Cate Hogan has spent most of her life buried in the realm of the make believe. It's where she's most at home; reclining on the therapist's couch as she works through the many problems of her characters and conjures happy endings from the seemingly insurmountable. She's also been described by one writer as a literary 'eagle', soaring over the terrain of his plot and characterisation while simultaneously focussed on the minutiae below; repetitions and redundancies lurking behind clunky sentence structure, and grammatical errors scuttling through muddy sentences.Cate offers writers a partnership founded in tough love, as well as the support and encouragement they need to reach their full potential.
