We love to graze on the written and spoken word. It’s a team effort.

 

Writers Unlimited is a weekly membership writers group and gathering of authors who share their work for peer feedback. The group was founded in 1984 by Monika Rose and published five Manzanita poetry and prose book collections and three additional The Journal volumes under the name of Writers Unlimited.  With the formation of Manzanita Writers Press in 2009, the Manzanita series and other books are now published by MWP, Manzanita Writers Press, a non-profit 501(c)(3) arts organization.

Location: Manzanita Arts Emporium, 1211 S. Main St., Suite 110,  in Historic Downtown Angels Camp, CA. We are located on the corner of Main St. (Hwy 49) and Rasberry Lane, kitty-corner across the street from the Visitors Center.

Call for directions if you have trouble finding us:  209-728-6171.

 

Flash Fiction

Writers Unlimited members have been known to produce some eclectic brief masterpieces. The photograph above illustrates some of the hidden flash-in-the-pan talent of our writers. This photo is found in Glenn Wasson’s book, Too Much to Swallow, introducing his flash fiction writing.

There will be no writers meetings on holidays such as Christmas and Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, Labor Day, etc. but call ahead or email  for  Monday holidays.

Please email Writers Unlimited ahead to let them know you are planning on coming as seating is limited. Also, you should attend a couple of sessions before your work is approved for manuscript review. Longtime members receive priority for manuscript review. There is a manuscript and review protocol. Evening meetings: Snacks are brought and shared by the collective. Drop-ins welcome, but be sure to email the facilitator and let her know you are arriving.
