The instructor provided an invaluable insider's point of view…. This Gotham class allowed me to take part in dialogues with people from Croatia to Washington State, on topics from an encounter with Mother Theresa to peddling a pedicab in California. I loved the disparate points of view and the extravagant variety of travel experiences that were shared online!

Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction Carla Curtsinger
The course gave me the push I needed to write again. I feel like I've gained a lot in writing skill and the reading has exposed me to a lot of writers I didn't know existed. I can't think of an easier or quicker way to access feedback from other writers. I can't wait for the next course…. I enjoyed the chat room specifically when our instructor and then a member of Zoetrope publishing joined it. The information I got from those two sessions was priceless.

I loved the online experience. The convenience of being able to study in my own home, and connect with people thousands of miles away. I think it's better than an actual classroom. It allows a more flexible schedule—if you get interrupted, you can just stop and catch up later.…
