Masterclass Review

 

Guys, I’ll keep this page here so I can add my Masterclass Review.

I love it very much and I think it’s a great help for writers (and everyone basically because they have a lot of variety).

If you are a writer, and you want to improve, you want to be successful and become an author, there are only two things you must do: write and improve your writing.

Learning with professionals is the best things you can do.

What is Masterclass?

 

Masterclass is a website that offers a lot of classes taught by renowned professionals in their fields.

The classes are almost a piece of art.

They are artistic, the photography is beautiful, it is surrounded by classical music, a well-thought edition.

It feels like you are there with your teacher, one-on-one.

  • Dan Brown;
  • Margaret Atwood;
  • R. L. Stine;

Incredible best-selling writers, big industry names, that teach their process and reveal a lot of secrets. I’m in!

 

Which classes have I seen yet?

 

I’m in the process of watching: Dan Brown, Malcolm Gladwell, David Mamet.

As soon as I finish them, I’ll post their reviews here!

 


I wrote a full review of Neil Gaiman’s class here! There, I give you a summary of what happens in each class and a lot of spoilers so you can decide if it’s worth it or not for you.
 

He covers:

  1. Introduction
  2. Truth in Fiction
  3. Sources of Inspiration
  4. Finding your voice
  5. Developing the story
  6. Story case study: The Graveyard Book
  7. Short Fiction
  8. Short Fiction Case Study: March Tale
  9. Dialogue and Character
  10. Character Case Study: October Tale
  11. Worldbuilding
  12. Description
  13. Humor
  14. Genre
  15. Comics
  16. Dealing with Writer’s Block
  17. Editing
  18. Rules for Writers
  19. The Writer’s Responsibilities

 

I tell you what I thought from each class, revealing a lot of what he says there. So definitely check the full review here.
 

What I have to say is that I really loved it, especially how I felt that he was there in the room alone with me, giving me a particular class, a private lesson on writing.

He also opens up himself, talking about secrets from Coraline, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Sandman, Neverwhere, American Gods, and more. So, if you are a Neil Gaiman’s fan like me, it is totally worth it.

This might cost a fortune! How much it is?!

 

It is actually not expensive at all.
 

One class is 90$. For example, for Neil Gaiman’s one, with 19 classes in the course, it will be less than 5$ per class. Also, it really helped me with a lot of insights into writing.

You definitely don’t get what he teaches there nowhere else because he reveals his personal secrets, techniques, analysis, and thoughts.

But, definitely, the pass for all the classes is worth it.

It is 180$ for over 45 classes with Masters in their arts. This makes it 6$ per course, which almost 20 classes in each. This makes it  30 CENTS PER LESSON! To have classes with Neil Gaiman HIMSELF, Margaret Atwood, SAMUEL JACKSON, Gordon Ramsay, and more! For a whole year!

Also, if it helps you to be a better writer and sells a lot of books, it is completely worth it. If you become an awesome writer, thanks to these professionals’ secrets, and you decide to sell on Amazon for 5$ each book, you only have to sell 18 books to pay for the class or 36 books in total for the pass. This is MINIMAL close to the number of books you will sell if you become a best-seller thanks to all these tips and techniques.

All the classes come with PDF, full of exercises.

They also have a feature called “office hours”, in which, as they describe: “Upload videos will get feedback from the class. The author will also critique select student work”.

Okay, what are you waiting for?

I got mine and I found it personally awesome!
