I think taking an online class is brilliant because you can access the class 24/7. I love the break down of the lecture, the notebook, the class discussion, and the booth. Most of all, this class got me writing for 10 weeks straight! With interactivity, you feel you want to write. You have a purpose and a goal so you prioritize it. And you feel like you're getting somewhere. I've taken Gotham's classes before and I will take them again—they're awesome.

I love it! I didn't think that an online class could be comparable to a real class; I never would have imagined it to be superior! Your online classes are the paradigm for all future online schools to emulate. Thanks to your class, I have already written the first 10 pages of my screenplay, and it's only the third week! You've made a lifelong Gotham student out of me.
