The success of both parties depends on marketing from both PSA and the speaker. What is your marketing strategy for your class? Include groups and networks you will make contact with, students you might have, places you frequent, etc.
Which quarter are you intending to do this class in? Even if your class is not chosen for the quarter you intended it to be, we may move it to the next quarter if that's an option.
Having an open schedule is great for PSA to schedule, but sometimes life isn't that way. Are there generally days of the week that are usually open for you? What are your suggestions for this class?
For this class, do you need birth data from students? Don't ask for birth data unless it is necessary and you plan to print charts for people. In the description, you can ask for students to bring their charts, too.

Please explain your personal views on the 12-Letter Alphabet and it's use.

PSA has a goal to teach astrology through an anti-oppression framework. What inclusion education or experience have you had to best appeal your lecture to a wide number of people without excluding people? (This certainly is not limited to sexual orientation, however a great place to start is with the Queer Astrology movement or a teleclass done by PSA's own Rhea Wolf as a resource http://portlandastrology.org/digital-downloads/rhea-wolf-gender-in-astrology-re-envisioning-our-language-for-a-gender-queer-future)
