Publishing workshop

The book portion of the CPC commences with the (dun dun dun scary music) Book Workshop. In groups of 10 or so, we are tasked with creating a publishing company from the ground up, producing a collection of worthy books, designing the covers, marketing and publicizing each title, getting them "accepted" by Barnes and Noble, and keeping ourselves financially afloat.

My group is creating a children's book publisher. Today our task was to come up with a mission statement and company title, and think of twelve book ideas. Turns out we needed many more ideas, because our publishing mentors rejected most of our initial thoughts!

This week proves to be stressful, but hopefully it'll also be fun. Deep breath...
