Manzanita Writers Press is a nonprofit literary publisher located in the Mother Lode of Calaveras County, in Angels Camp, California. Our mission is to take on regional publishing projects that reflect our rural, foothill/Sierra environment, but we are open to good proposals. We generally publish 3-4 titles per year and are anticipating a full calendar for 2017, with five books projected this year. In 2018, we have committed to five more books and are anticipating an increase in clients.

Contact us for more information. Read about the submission process. We assist writers in seeking publishing support for their projects, but we do not fundraise for particular authors. Potential authors are asked to pursue funding and sponsorships to help finance their publishing project.

MWP charges low-cost editing and design rates to assist authors in their publishing endeavors. Authors have a great deal of autonomy and participate in most aspects of the publishing process including cover and book design input and decisions, as well as the editing process.
