Welcome to Manzanita Writers Press, a member of the Literary League of the nonprofit arts organization, the Calaveras County Arts Council.
We are located in scenic and rural Calaveras County in California, a foothill and Sierra mountain community with a variety of natural resources, interests, vocations, historical backgrounds, and lifestyles. We’re about an hour and a half from Lodi/Stockton/Modesto/Turlock and the San Joaquin Valley, and about an hour and a half southeast of Sacramento. We’re two and half hours from San Francisco, two hours from Yosemite, an hour and fifteen minutes from Bear Valley Ski area, and two and a half hours from Lake Tahoe.
If you’ve heard of the famous Mark Twain short story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” then that would be us, with Angels Camp, the setting of that story, situated in the center of our geographical wheel.
Our writing community has blossomed into a mini-Renaissance of publishing in our area. Come check us out. With our first four books released to the world and available via Small Press Distribution ( www.spdbooks.org ), we have launched our nonprofit publishing efforts and look forward to many years of promoting the literary arts in our region and beyond, as well as promoting writers with high quality work that we believe in.
