We’re back! After a two year break from publishing, Sunshine in a Jar Press is back. Since launching From the Cottage Porch in May 2011 we have moved to Cobourg, Ontario. I’ve adjusted to my new day job as high school vice principal and feel ready to continue with the vision for Sunshine in a Jar Press.
Tomorrow night I am reading for the first time with the Cobourg Poetry Workshop. It starts at 6:30 at Palisade Gardens–if you’re in the area!
Registration is now open for the Ontario Writer’s Conference, May 3 and 4, 2013. Hope you can join us!
I will be teaching a Master Class titled: We Write Who We Are.
“Hill Spirits Anthology introduces a sampling of the diverse range of writers and writing styles found in the Spirit of the Hills Writers Group. In Hill Spirits, you’ll find amusing slice-of-life stories, scary tales to share around the campfire and, in a quiet moment, poems for reflection.”
Life Rattle Radio Update #30
This Sunday, May 29th, CKLN Live Internet Stream will be airing the last two stories in our Mini-Festival of Family Stories.
Today’s book launch for FROM THE COTTAGE PORCH was a great success! Approximately 80 people attended. Including online pre-launch sales we sold 181 copies of the book. This is a great start for a new compay. Thank-you to Mary E. McIntyre for this picture of the attending authors/contributors and a picture of me. James Dewar was a wonderful MC. Pat O’Prey filled the room with campfire songs and classic rock. His smooth voice and guitar were the perfect combo to get the cottage porch rockin’ !
