A brief note on how Night Classes work. They are not live.
They ARE lessons posted to a Yahoo Group and question and answer sessions. They are made for busy writers who are juggling five things at once. The lesson arrives in your in-box, or you can go online and read it. Read the lesson at midnight in your jammies or in the bathroom with your iPad. It's for your convenience. Don't miss out on these amazing opportunities because you think you don't have time.
