"This fall I'll be teaching two very interesting online classes, and I want to pass the word. They are inexpensive and you don't have to live in Austin to take them.
The first is an online memoir class. Students will complete a series of weekly exercises leading up to the creation of three memoir pieces and interact in online discussion boards. For more information on how to sign up, contact Mary Rincon in the ACC Creative Writing Department at email@example.com .
The second is an online Composition II honors course highlighting short stories by Texas authors. Ever had the urge to read and learn from the greats of Texas literature? This is the perfect opportunity. For more information on how to enroll, contact the ACC Honors Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classes begin Aug. 25 and both are limited to 15 students. Be warned that you will have to fill out some ACC paperwork before joining the class, so it's best not to wait until the last minute. Contact me directly if this is all totally confusing: email@example.com."
