Fiona McIntosh


To my enormous delight, Fiona McIntosh will continue to run a Masterclass Writing Course. I can think of no writer in Australia, or for that matter elsewhere, who will do so with a more professional aptitude and sheer pizzazz! Go for it writers, it will change your life!Bryce Courtenay, September 2012.

The McIntosh Signature Commercial Fiction Masterclass now has a dedicated site which includes the various smaller workshops and professional days on offer via McIntosh Books Pty Ltd.

Please click here if you would like more detail:

This is five intensive days with fiction writer, Fiona McIntosh. It is designed for aspiring and emerging writers of commercial fiction who have done the writing classes, read the writing books and are still looking for inspiration and that elusive catalyst that propels them toward publication.

Fiona will challenge you through the week so bring your arsenal of creativity, imagination, passion and above all energy. This is about preparing for success with your writing and she will show you how to overcome the traditional insecurities and inhibitions that plague new writers and hamper their power to move forward.


blockbusterTo alleviate the demand for masterclass places in 2018 the new Mini Masterclass is hoping to capture the anxious – this is a pared back version of three days of you, me and half as many writers, crystallised to a potent bootcamp held in the Clare Valley.  Be assured we shall cover all the same landscape in terms of storytelling but I’ve trimmed back some of the bells and whistles such as our various guest speakers, the pitch and our group dinner.  We shall still have lunches daily and morning/afternoon teas so plenty of social time.

Only 10 writers to ensure maximum space for one on one time with me and more discussion time among the group.

Although the 2018 Mini is FULL – sorry – we are taking bookings now for the 2019 Mini Masterclass
