Issa Rae set to teach a new MasterClass for creatives, PR Newswire reports.

MasterClass, the digital platform offering one on one courses from some of the world’s greatest minds, announced a new class from entertainment mogul Issa Rae on creating outside the lines. Rae launched her career in 2011 with the web series, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. She went on to gain a number of awards for the work, eventually landing her own series on HBO, Insecure, which has nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Since then, Rae has taken the industry by storm, producing and starring in a number of films, launching her own record label, investing in the growing tech industry, and making history as the first female celebrity voice of Google Assistant. In 2018, Rae was named one of Time magazine’s most influential people in the world. 


David Rogier, founder and CEO of MasterClass spoke about the value Rae brings to the platform, saying, “Issa is one of the most celebrated creators in recent history because of her authenticity and unflinching boldness when it comes to storytelling. Her MasterClass at its core is about inspiring action and not being discouraged by roadblocks. Our members will walk away feeling motivated and ready to act on the ideas and stories that have been brewing within them.”

Rae’s class will focus on a number of topics, inspiring and empowering members to believe in their dreams and create their own tables, teaching members how to develop a pilot and character build in scripts while also honing in on the creative process and developing good writing habits. She also will share personal challenges and struggles from her own story and teach creatives how to find their voice in their work. 

“A lot of people enter the industry thinking their ideas have to be perfect and fit into a specific kind of box, but that’s never been part of my process. In my MasterClass, I want to tell you everything that I’ve gone through, every mistake that I’ve made and everything that I’ve learned so far, so that you can do better than I did. If you have a desire to create, this class is for you,” said Rae. 


Issa Rae’s MasterClass on creating outside the lines is available now. Subscribers will get unlimited access with an annual membership to all 100+ instructors.

Congratulations Issa!
