I received a subscription to MasterClass for Christmas. I immediately went through the list of many offerings and compiled a wish list of classes I’d like to take.

For those of you who are not familiar, MasterClass offers online classes on topics like Film & TV, Culinary Arts, Writing, Business, Photography, and Fashion. They are created for students of all skill levels. The instructors are the best in the world including popular, recognized, and professional chefs, actors, athletes, and authors. A few of the many impressive names associated with the sessions are: Ron Howard, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Wolfgang Puck, Gordon Ramsey, Annie Leibovitz, Penn & Teller, Timbaland, James Patterson, Neil Gaiman, Simone Biles, and Serena Williams.

Not only am I drawn to the writing courses, but watching the trailers piqued my interest in other speakers, as well. I’m curious about the hows and whys of successful people–no matter their craft of choice.

There are over 75 MasterClasses available. Each class is broken up into about 20 lessons and each lesson is about 10 minutes long.

I’ve watched a couple of episodes from a couple of different instructors. I’ve participated in several of the suggested exercises, and I’ve read through some of the syllabi. I am eager to be taught and inspired.

Unfortunately, between writing book 2 and doing design work, it’s hard to find MORE time to (sit at the computer and) commit to an entire class. BUT I WILL!

And when I do, I will gladly share my impressions.

If you have taken any of the MasterClass offerings, please share your experiences.
Maybe we could get together and discuss.
(That would force me to get through a whole course, lol. I’m just sayin’.)

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
