SPARK Publications Celebrates 2020 Award Winners and Finalists

In Awards by Fabi PreslarLeave a Comment

Who knew thriving through cancer in 2019 would be one of the gifts to help SPARK Publications be prepared to thrive through a globally even more challenging 2020? All of the SPARKlers were challenged, stretched, and transformed. We’ve lost and we’ve gained. We laughed, we cried, we gave, and then gave some more. We said goodbye to a few clients, creatively served our cherished clients, miraculously welcomed two large national association magazines, and helped birth an astounding 27 books, eight of which will be published in early 2021.

We cheered and celebrated many client wins this year. Even throughout the hardships, sadness, struggles, and losses, there were moments of cheers for their maintained and growing businesses. To further help share the cheer, below is a list of a few 2020 national award wins. Please reach out and congratulate them!

I’m sending you each big cheers for intentional actions and prayers of hope for a healthy, prosperous, safe, and joyful 2021.

In deep gratitude,

Fabi Preslar
President
