Here are a few suggestions to make the experience as seamless as possible: 
• Ensure that you are able to access the UStream channel Rest assured that there will be no comnercials since the acount is Pro.
• Jarrett will be taking comments and questions via the chat function. Consider using two computers, one to project the video feed for your students (which you can maximize to be full-screen) and one for you to submit the questions. It may be distracting for your students to see all of the question being submitted.
• Jarrett will be starting each workshop at the stated times above. You are welcome to attend each if you wish! But please connect just a few minutes ahead of each reading. Jarrett will begin the broadcast a few minutes ahead of time, so you can know that you are connected and the readings will start soon after.
• Photography is welcome and we look forward to seeing what this will look like from your point-of-view!
Please don't videotape the reading. Copyright and all. . . thanks for understanding!
