The Amador Anthology

of Nonfiction Writers

by Sarah Luck Pearson

A fresh wind is blowing through the Sierras. It is the bold new voices of the first Amador Literary Society. The Amador Anthology of Nonfiction Writers features thirteen nonfiction stories that grew out of four Creative Nonfiction Workshops from Fall 2012 to Spring 2013. The result is a compelling collection of true stories written from the heart of Amador.


"These extremely personal stories about love, friendship, aging and death are powerful in scope and polished in quality. Some bring a smile to the face while others are deeply affecting in ways that keep with the best tradition of creative non-fiction. Pearson did an incredible job of helping these writers of all ages find their voices."

— Scott Thomas Anderson, Sierra Lodestar Magazine

“Sarah Luck Pearson has created more than a group of writers; she has created a glowing, breathing spirit that lives on after it has left this space. The words of each writer show a depth of self-awareness and wisdom gained that can only reflect commitment and dedication to craft. We look forward to hosting Sarah and the Amador Literary Society again and again.”

--Linda & Wolf Hein, Hein & Co Bookstore

“The anthology is both an example of excellent story telling as well as revelations of personal experiences--both hard tasks to achieve together. Thank you for the opportunity to revisit my own experience, while reading about others. Hope Sarah Luck Pearson and Amador county writers will produce many other anthologies like these!”

--Ruth Gottstein, Publisher Emerita, Volcano Press




“There is a vitality, a life force,

an energy, a quickening that is translated

through you into action.

And because there is only one you in all time, this expression

is unique.

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium,

the world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is,

nor how valuable,

nor how it compares with other expressions.

It is your business to keep it yours

clearly and directly,

to keep the channel open.”

-Martha Graham

"Follow your inner moonlight; Don't hide the madness."

Whether in person or via email and phone, private coaching is a customized learning experience where you have the full attention of an editor, a coach, and a mentor. I have worked with dozens of individuals over the years as an editor, or designing personalized correspondence programs so writers at any location can experience workshop direction.
