Sunshine in a Jar Books
ANTANAS SILEIKA, author of Underground and Director of Humber School for Writers:
“The Writing Spiral is an inspirational and motivational book for those involved in the practice of writing. It deals with practical matters such as how to avoid getting stuck in a writing project, how to behave in a writers’ group, and how to go about finding a safe community in which to test ideas. But it is also a philosophical book that meditates on the meaning of writing in one’s life, learning how to see, and adapting to solitude and self-awareness. This text wonders about writing, and includes pieces by other writers involved in the same experience, and I recommend it for all those who wonder about writing too and want to get even more engaged in the life of writing. It will also help spur those just starting out on this path.”
We are thrilled to share with you the talented people who will contribute to our next book, The Writing Spiral: Learning as a Writer. This is a collection of essays, memoirs, stories, poems, exercises, and writing tips that captures the spirit of learning to become a writer. For all writers.
Sunshine in a Jar Press has joined forces with Press Here to Start Publishing to rent a booth at The Cobourg Waterfront Festival, June 28-July 1, 2014. Our books will be available in Tent A in the Rotary Arts & Craft Show. We are the only booksellers participating! And, we are totally thrilled to be facing Lake Ontario and the Cobourg Harbour for the cool breezes and fantastic view!

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!
