Neil Gaiman's Masterclass Review

Robert Wood

Ratings :

When the MasterClass began, I doubted Gaiman’s ability to assess the nuts and bolts that the average author needs but, while it took a little while for him to really start labeling tools, he succeeds, and you’ll leave his class with at least a couple of tools you won’t find elsewhere.

Whether it’s worth your money is a matter of your personal budget, but I will say that if you’re definitely willing to spend the price of admission on good writing advice, this is the place to spend it

I’m enjoyed it–Gaiman is one of my favorite authors, and there are some excellent bits of advice in there–but it definitely trends downward when it comes to whether it’s for beginners VS advanced writers. It’s all excellent advice, but I feel like I’m already following most of it.

The valuable part of the class comes when he talks about his works in detail–what he wanted to convey, why he chose to do certain things, etc. If you’re familiar with the books you can get a lot out of that.
