Hello. I am Barbara Kidd Lawing, writer, freelance editor, writing teacher, and performance poet near Charlotte, NC.
See below for details about my Writers Day Camp. I lead weekend writing retreats, writing classes at Central Piedmont Community College and the Levine Jewish Comm. Ctr., private classes and freewrite circles, and shows featuring myself and other writers.
My book, 117 Poems, is available at mainstreetrag.com.
NOW – THE BIG NEWS:
Writers Day Camp — Season 4!
May and June 2017
Wednesday - Saturday, 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
6211 Jim Kidd Rd, Huntersville, NC 28078
The Writers Day Camp opens for its fourth season in May & June (by appointment other months).
A few special events are planned, but most days are reserved for quiet. This is a country getaway spot, with sites indoors and out providing opportunity for you to write. Payment is by donation (see below). If you wish me to write with you, I will. If you wish me to review your writing, I will.
Come to the Writers Day Camp often. Bring your writer friends—bring a writing group! There is ample parking space.
Click on the Writers Day Camp page above for a calendar of special events.
- Each time you come to the Writers Day Camp, please drop a donation in the box to support this venture.
- Special events usually have a fee attached.
- Private editing sessions at the day camp are available by appointment.
The Writers Day Camp is dedicated to the memory of Laura S. Moore. Laura got her start at writing material for performance as a member of my Perpendicular Poets group. She was a natural humorist who delighted audiences—though in the beginning she was convinced she could not stand in front of an audience and speak. Her book – A Rock Skipping Out to the World – is available at the Day Camp and mainstreetrag.com.
I look forward to seeing you at the Writers Day Camp! Come as often as you can.
