The world has adapted and become used to – and indeed adept – at conducting everything from business meetings and interviews to workshops online. However, there are occasions when nothing can match the interaction that a personal presence can deliver, especially for creatives.
And this factor, although hard to measure but so obvious in its bonding effect when you join the small group, is why the McIntosh Masterclass has resisted the pressure from many writers to present itself in a complete online format. Instead there is Let’s Get Writing available for beginners especially to help build confidence and equip them to get busy on the project of their novel.
Both the signature 5-day commercial masterclass and its sister format, the 3-day mini masterclass remain as ‘in person’ gatherings of limited number groups under one roof.
For 2022 onwards, there are innovations that will see the 5-dayer being offered on the Gold Coast as well as Adelaide, and the mini now being offered in Hobart as well as the Clare Valley in SA.
