I’d like you to meet one of the 180 people coming to LittWorld. She is publisher Eva Kristiaman of Indonesia.

“LittWorld is my school in publishing,” Eva says. “I missed twice since attending LittWorld 2004. I and the other director decided to re-commence the Salt and Light of the World Publishing House last January 2011. I run this publishing as a business with a mission heart, and apply the golden rule (Matthew 7:12) literally in every decision I have made.

“Currently we are preparing to publish the next book, with a new local writer and I am the co-writer. I know that it’s time for me to attend LittWorld 2012 training conference.”

Like Eva, many LittWorld participants will come to Kenya eager to learn–the conference being their “school in publishing.” What a privilege for MAI to have even a small part in their publishing journey.

At the end of the day, good content is still key. Thus, MAI’s work is cut out for us: to help with the ongoing development of national authors. With the work of the Holy Spirit, God’s Word will remain alive and powerful in transforming lives. Books and magazines, both in print and digital, based on biblical principles and teachings, by authors writing in their local context and heart language, will continue to make an impact for Christ until He comes again.

Could the rise of self-publishing endanger the viability of publishers in your country? Please comment.

As a graduate student I attended my first Evangelical Press Association (EPA) convention. That was 35 years ago. But I still have notes from a workshop on writing the “perfect circle” article. That is, you start with a “Wow!” element in the lead and conclude by referring back to the same “Wow!” element—thus bringing the reader full circle.

That little structure served me well over the years. You never know what you might come away with from a training conference.

The incident captured Liz’s commitment to excellence in Christian writing and publishing. When training Christian writers and communicators, she often quoted Ecclesiastes 12:10: “The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.”
