Hill advises her consultancy clients to write like a winner: Diligently, daringly and with every fiber of their beings. Play-writing is a business and if anyone understands the business of play-writing and production it is Jeanette Hill.
The award-winning playwright (The Best Lesson, Dealing with Daddy’s Devils and The Silent City) seamlessly combines the best of traditional with urban theater. From a business perspective, Hill is a firm believer that art does not have to bow down to profit or lack of quality to be entertaining.

She is the 2013 recipient of the Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival’s “People’s Choice Award for a Stage Play,” and the winner of the renowned Atlanta Black Theatre Festival’s “Best Staged Reading” award.
