Taking classes can be expensive. I’ve gone the way of the free courses you can take but only pay if you want a certificate many times. Recently though I’ve stumbled across Going through their class list surprised me. Not only were the course choices impressive, but the instructors are a who’s who in their chosen field.

But being a writer, I took a look at the choices under “writing.” Seven authors are listed. I’ve read and/or heard of all of them. I clicked on Margaret Atwood, who teaches creative writing, to see what the course entailed. It’s just like signing up for a college course. There is a video of the instructor telling you about the class, and there is a syllabus to read through as well.

Classes are amazingly inexpensive with being able to take an unlimited number of classes for a year for $180. I was thinking about the course with Carlo Santana, who teaches “the Art and Soul of Guitar.” Doing the course won’t be a problem either since I can watch the videos on my phone, computer, or tablet.

If I wanted to, I could even gift a class (or classes) to someone else. But I have to admit the thought of studying with the likes of Neil Gaiman, Dan Brown, or Margret Atwood have me leaning toward doing it for myself first. After all, I need to make sure that whoever I am going to get it for will like it!

This is a fantastic gift for yourself or someone you love. Imagine being taught by your hero!

    These are pretty much YouTube videos, and there’s no dearth of writing advice already available online.

    Certainly, all the *fundamentals* are available from a myriad of sources. Atwood, Gaiman, and Brown aren’t going to teach you anything about e.g. basic plotting that you can’t find already. You might even be able to find something on their own blogs!

    And everything else, as Chuck Wendig, is survivorship bias anyway. If there’s some writing tip that’s so secret that you have to pay $90 to learn it, then it probably won’t be useful for you anyway. There are many, many writing strategies, not because writers are stupid and most of them can’t figure out The Optimal Strategy but because there are many Optimal Strategies.

    Do you really want to pay $90 just to find out that Neil Gaiman’s workflow is incompatible with yours?
