Sunshine in a Jar Books
Write who you are. Live your metaphors.
I’m excited to share this online course with you. I believe that to become better writers we need to become better learners. This course takes you and your writing on a self-reflective journey through eight learning spirals. The course is as much about self-discovery as it is about writing.
How does metaphor work in your life? What is your relationship with your writing process? How do you develop mastery as a writer? How do you write your truth? Actively explore metaphor through writing and reflection to boost your creativity and re-invigorate your writing process.
To celebrate the anniversary of the launch of The Writing Spiral: Learning as a Writer I’ve decided to read the book on audio as a podcast.
My Aunt Pat calls them Book Jams. When I was getting ready for the Waterfront Festival I was planning on creating some small chapbooks…then on the Friday before the festival the chapbook became a “Book in a Jar.” We are Sunshine in a Jar, after all. It makes sense that we should have books in a jar. We sold them for $10 and they were a big hit!
Another amazing four days at the Cobourg Waterfront Festival in the Rotary Arts & Crafts tents! My aunt Pat Skene and I joined forces selling our books to readers of all ages. Our booth had a stunning view of the Cobourg Harbour and the midway on the Pier. We met many talented artists and artisans. We saw many generous friends and family who bought our new books or stopped by for a visit.
On October 19th, 2014 at Victoria Hall in Cobourg, Jessica Outram and Sunshine in a Jar Press launched The Writing Spiral: Learning as a Writer. A big thanks to Chuck Willemsen for taking and sharing these photos!! I wish now that I had thought of doing a group shot with all the contributors.
