"William did a great job helping aspiring writers not only learn more about their craft, but also the realities of what it takes to be a writer in today's market. Well done."

William Hazelgrove has a way of talking with prospective writers in a way that makes them feel like they are getting advice from a friend. His open way of leading the discussion had patrons asking questions and talking about their own struggles. The advice Mr. Hazelgrove gave to each of us in attendance is sure to be very helpful in our future writing endeavors.

Mr. Hazelgrove tells it like it is with humor and inspiration. Every writer – from the newbies to those with numerous publications – can learn something from his Selling Your Writing in the Age of Social Media presentation. Susan Gibberman Shaumburg Township Library
"William Hazelgrove's presentation on writing a memoir was well-received – he offered helpful writing tips and insider information on becoming a published author."

"Mr. Hazelgrove's presentation reinforced a lot of what we teach about in our reading and writing classes." – Ali Tannenbaum
"I liked that Bill talked about how he kept a journal of advice based on rejection letters he had received, and that he became a better writer because of that. It showed the students that writing is a journey and no one is good at first and that you get better along the way." – Lynn Bruno
"Author William Hazelgrove truly inspired and motivated our Creative Writing classes with his presentation at our school this spring".
