Laura Barton
Artist | Professional | Literature

My name is really and truly Laura Barton, and I have my Bachelor of the Arts degree in English Language and Literature from Brock University. My passions lie in fictional and non-fictional writing, and mental health awareness, for which I am an advocate concerning mainly dermatillomania, depression, anxiety and eating disorders. I'm rather obsessed with the 1966 Batman series and Batman in general, and I do also enjoy drawing from time to time.

Project Dermatillomania: A book project I started and have been working on with other skin pickers in which we tell our stories in hopes of showing others they are not alone. Unpublished as of yet, but near completion. Click the title to check out the facebook page.

Canadian-Badge by Dinoclaws Ontarian-Badge by Dinoclaws
Hey everyone,

For those of you who don't know, since September, my writing has taken an interesting turn. I started a Journalism course, and so most of my writing focus for the school year has been on that. Have I abandoned creative writing? No way! I'm just giving myself another avenue to make my way in the world and hopefully put food in my stomach (and the stomachs of my loved ones). Creative writing will always be a part of me, but until that can be my viable source of income, journalistic writing will probably be at the fore.

That being said, my classmates and I have officially put out our first paper this week! My teacher chose me as the Editor of the paper, so I was able to not only write a news piece, but also an editorial, both of which I want to share with you all now!

The first is an article about my school's accessibility for person's with disabilities. Here in Ontario, the government has said that by 2025 all establishments should be accessible to everyone. My article is about how well my college is faring so far. 

My editorial discusses the idea of mandatory psych evaluations in the wake of the Germanwings tragedy. 

I would love to know what you all think! Any and all feedback is much appreciated. :)

Much love!


PS: This summer will hopefully be a time to get back to some creative writing, lol.
