Thanks to new support from the Veterans Affairs Commission, El Dorado Arts Council has expanded its Veterans’ Voices Writing Workshop to South Lake Tahoe.

Open to all Veterans from any branch or service, Veterans’ Voices Writing Workshop encourages all skill levels to join and offers a supportive environment for the writing of stories – service related or not, fiction or nonfiction.

The Workshop is held on the Lake Tahoe Community College campus in Room A206, next door to the LTCC Veterans Center. Meetings are 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.

In October, local Tahoe writer Kim Wyatt, took the helm for the workshop. Kim is a South Lake Tahoe writer and founder of the local press Bona Fide Books. She has been published widely, most recently in Best American Travel Writing, and 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.
