Author Visit with Kate Foster

28th August, 2023

Our Year 5 students recently had the pleasure of listening to middle-grade author Kate Foster speak about writing and how she came up with the ideas for her books. She has spent her life writing and only recently entered the publishing world.

Kate’s focus is on writing books about diversity: especially autism and creating characters that have differences, encouraging these differences to be celebrated.

Dogs also hold a special place in her heart, and she won all the students over with her stories about her dogs. She also had friends take picture of their dogs which she used as a jumping off point to create magical tales about the adventures those dogs had. Demonstrating that we can use what is around us to create engaging stories.
