For an assignment in Neil Gaiman’s MasterClass, students were invited to choose a moment in their lives that was emotionally impactful. The options were as follows: a time when you were deeply embarrassed, a time you regret something you did, the saddest moment of your life, or a secret you are afraid to talk about.




Sharing writing ideas, mistakes, exercises and lessons from the masters.
