Wednesday was Capstone’s second annual Cappy Awards — the first I’ve attended. Overall, it was a feel-good, fun event designed to celebrate the books we've created over the course of the past year, as well as the people who worked on them. One moment that stood out to me, however, was when our group publisher, Ashley, asked who in the group had been able to work on new projects in product development in the past year — everyone in my line of vision raised his or her hand.
This is pretty unique.
From past jobs and internships, I’ve learned that everyone wants to be working on what’s new. And in those places, often newbies like myself don’t get the opportunity to work on brand-new product. But the neat thing about Capstone is that everyone has opportunities to work on new projects. And there is always room to share new ideas, which is important to our success.
And I think this guy and gal, who will be making their official debuts in the kid-lit world tomorrow (February 1st), would agree . . .
Meet Benji Franklin: Kid Zillionaire
and Krystal Ball, who “may look small” but is “really a medium” . . .
