Thank you for the splendid presentation...our audience was galvanized. — Nancy Rubin Stuart, Cape Cod Writers Center, Osterville, MA
You left raving fans in Pittsburgh! — Jennifer Morris, Pennsylvania Spring Arts Conference, Pittsburgh, PA
I received emails the next day saying, "Great!" "Great workshop!!!!" "Spot-on." — Cristina DiChiera, Rhode Island State Council for the Arts, Providence, RI
You were superb at Rally! Your knowledge and energy and generosity of spirit helped push this Rally to "the best one in 28 years," as many people have already said. — Linda Peckham, Rally of Writers, Lansing, MI
Thank you, Hillary, for your gentle wisdom and fierce knowledge -- we all remain inspired to make important and valuable changes in our lives. — Suzzanne Cromwell, Cultural Organization of Lowell (MA)
The Grub Street Writers community has benefited greatly from Hillary’s smart, organized, inspiring and valuable seminars. The common refrain in her evaluations is: ‘we want more!’ —Chris Castellani, Grub Street Writers, Boston, MA
Hillary’s dynamic, heartfelt workshops not only empowered and inspired our staff members, but provided them with insights and tools that they could use to empower and inspire others, including our clients. As such, Hillary’s workshops provide “double value.” —George Zeller, Jewish Vocational Service, Boston, MA
Boston Skillshare participants attended Hillary’s workshops in droves and left with strong tools to manage their lives. Participant feedback described Rettig’s workshops as “inspiring and practical,” “invaluable,” and a means to “truly examine my time management issues." — Bart Admonius, Organizer, Boston Skillshare, Boston, MA
Thank you for another great training. The skills you share are so universally needed. — Robbie Samuels, SoJust, Boston, MA
Many of our Chicks told me they went home and put your words to work the very next morning as they sat down to write. —Tracey Palmer, Chicks Who Write, Norwell, MA
You made complex and important topics incredibly clear. It was great that I knew exactly what to do when I went home.
After your workshop, I cleaned out my email inbox. Some of the messages were 3 years old!
Off-the-charts outstanding. Absolutely astonishing. Honest, respectful, encouraging and sincere. You had us all rapt.
Your class so far is right on target....I was both astounded and humbled because you sucker punched me in the gut with your accuracy.
I woke up with enthusiasm instead of dread at the thought of working. I am taking small steps, but taking them with joy.
Since taking your class I have finished writing seven chapters in my new manuscript.
