Praise For Pauline Bartel From:

Jean Powis of Troy, NY:

"Master of her trade, Pauline Bartel was an inspiration for my becoming a successful freelance writer. The writing course I took from her was invaluable, fun and challenging. The lessons she gave to her students were concise and easy to understand. I learned how to be creative, expressive and how to do research needed for my writing needs. Pauline answered fully any questions large or small that students asked. She knew how to reach us all. Pauline Bartel is surely an instructor who really cares about her students."

Eva Pearce of Troy, NY:

“My dream of having my writing published was daunting. Not knowing where or how to begin was paralyzing. So, when I discovered some how-to-become published courses taught by Pauline Bartel, at Hudson Valley Community College, I signed up.

I was quickly impressed with Pauline’s professional yet easy manner, her humor, and her ability to instill confidence and encouragement, while at the same time honestly sharing information about the daunting publishing industry and the hard work involved in breaking in. Her ability to focus and accomplish the goals for each session was impressive. I greatly appreciated her organizational skills.

During the book writing course, she offered students the opportunity to take advantage of her “No Excuses! Book Writing System.” This is an invaluable system for evaluating the feasibility of my ideas, researching, planning, organizing, and writing my proposal and query letter. It even includes sections for keeping track of my targeted contacts and my submissions. She is truly a focused and organized professional!

Pauline’s individualized attention and responses revealed a real interest in completely, yet concisely, addressing each student’s concerns. She shared practical insights and experiences with much humor and tact.

During the course on essay writing, Pauline offered an opportunity for students to submit their work for critique by the class. In giving specific guidelines for critique and affording confidentiality, she made the process very comfortable, non-threatening, seamless, and painless! She then offered us the gift of critiquing our work after we made changes based on the student body input.”


Mary Evans of Troy, NY:

"Thank you for a very informative course at HVCC ("Break Into Print With Nonfiction Articles"). Not only did I learn some very specific information about publishing, but I focused in on an article that had been only a vague idea - a useful tool for a course on publishing. Now I really want to write it! I also learned some teaching techniques I can apply to the courses I teach. Your course organization and presentation was impressive, and I always knew where I was in the course and why. Thanks again for your efforts and encouragement."


Jody Shayne of Albany, NY:

"I wanted to let you know again how much I enjoyed your class ["Publicity 101: Promoting Your Business, Product or Service"] . You gave us a lot of solid information with style and class and a touch of humor. I love the way you get the message out without banging people over the head. Your imagination slays me. Not only did I learn, but I had fun doing it!"
