Launched in June 2008, the Manzanita Writers’ Series has been dedicated to fostering the local writing community and promoting the area’s literacy and writing programs, as well as bringing authors closer to the north coast reading public.  In November 2018, we celebrated our 10th Anniversary with readings by local writers and a slide show of highlights from the last decade.

Author Readings

For the time being our author events are being held via Zoom.  Here’s a recent conversation with author Deborah Reed and her editor Nicole Angeloro.

Writing Workshops

Many of our featured authors also offer workshops. Workshop topics range from memoir writing, plot, project journaling, character development and more—and provide an opportunity for experienced writers as well as those new to the craft to learn from published authors.
