Neil Gaiman Masterclass

This is the second writer’s masterclass that I’ve signed up for. The first was James Patterson’s and the most memorable thing about it is that he advocates outlining your novel and building on the outline. I’m trying that with my Book Four. Not so much writing the words at the moment, but imagining the skeleton. Neil Gaiman writes fantasy and it’s wonderful. I loved ‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane’ and ‘Anansi Boys’. And if you are a writer get hold of his non-fiction collection ‘The View from the Cheap Seats’. Some of the material he covers in the class is in the book as speeches he has delivered. He teaches Creative Writing at university level so knows his stuff and is easy to relate to onscreen.
Margaret Atwood next. Each masterclass costs £85.
