Notice about our change of location:

Sadly, our Angels Camp Gallery, arts center, bookstore, and retail space in Historic downtown Angels Camp closed permanently  in 2020, due to COVID-19.

But we have a new business location that we utilize and will use for workshops, meetings, and classes, in 2022

MWP is located at the Volunteer Center of Calaveras County, 325 Lewis Avenue, San Andreas, CA 95249. By appointment only

We share space with the Red Cross and Volunteer Center who graciously house us!   

Check back with us soon on the schedule!

New address for client appointments only:

325 Lewis Avenue, San Andreas, CA 95249  – This is the office and workshop/meeting space where writers and Voices members will meet once we get the all-clear.

Mailing: PO Box 215, San Andreas, CA 95249

OUR ONLINE BOOKSTORE IS Vibrant and thriving, so GO TO THE online BOOKSTORE AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL AUTHORS BY PURCHASING AND READING THEIR BOOKS, BYPASSING AMAZON AT THIS TIME, as they keep most of the profits, as does Ingram, the printer and distributor, sorry to say.

We will ship to you. If you are local, (Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Amador counties) we can arrange for a product dropoff delivery or meeting.

Email us for more information at By shopping with us, you may pay more than Amazon charges, but 80% of the profit goes directly to the author. Amazon and the printer/distributor keep most of the profits if you shop there.

Support your local authors, please!

VIEW THE ARTIST PAGES IN THE GALLERY AND contact the artists for purchasing their lovely things.
