Editing projects and commissions

Book Sprints Limited – our project dates were greatly affected by Covid-19 lockdowns around the world. 90% of our already confirmed Sprints were postponed pending new dates later in the year. A handful proceeded during lockdown/quarantine periods on a fully virtual basis with extended time frames.
