[El Dorado Arts Council]

New support from Veterans Affairs Commission enables program to reach South Lake Tahoe vets.

El Dorado Arts Council is expanding its Veterans Voices’ Writing Workshop to South Lake Tahoe, where it will begin in October with local writer Kim Wyatt at the helm. The free, drop-in workshop is open to all veterans, from any branch of service and all skill levels are encouraged.

Veterans' Voices offers a supportive environment and the tools needed for the writing of stories, service related or not, (fiction and nonfiction) as well as memoir, poetry and drama.

The Workshop will be held on the Lake Tahoe Community College campus in Room A206, next door to the LTCC Veterans Center. Meetings will begin October 1st on Monday nights from 6:30 – 8:30 pm barring holidays and snow days. Updates will be provided on the Art Council website.

Attendance and parking are free.

Kim Wyatt, a South Lake Tahoe writer and founder of the local press Bona Fide Books, and has published widely, most recently in Best American Travel Writing. She brings two decades of teaching and publishing experience to the group. 

 “I’m excited to be a part of the workshop expansion to South Lake Tahoe,” said Wyatt, “I know our veterans have stories to tell, and I’m looking forward to helping them find a way to tell them.”

The workshops are free and open to all veterans and drop–ins are encouraged. For more information, visit or call 530-295-3496
