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 Masterclass.com 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. $90 for a single class (there is an average of 24 lessons in a class and 10 minutes give or take for each lesson) or you can spend $180 and be able to take unlimited classes for a year. 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!

About Jennifer Griffen

After losing my job of 15 years almost a year ago I decided to pursue my dream of being a freelance writer. I have a few novels and many short stories tucked away while I write for the local paper as well as write books reviews with the occasional interview. I am the proud Mom of three Pitbulls, a turtle, a snake and many mice. I prefer horror and mysteries but I also have a vast selection of history books. I also love Minions.😁
