Writing and Publishing Mentoring

Detailed information about 2020 Forum Mentoring is not yet available but will be posted in the future. Please review the information from the 2019 Forum for a look at the types of mentoring that may be available at the 2020 Forum.

Writing a book can be a daunting task. Many would-be writers are unsure of how to start or how to express their ideas into the structure of a book. Others who have drafted a book may struggle with how to publish in a minority language or an area with few opportunities. Those working in the publishing industry face challenges in their context and role related to editorial, production, marketing and distribution matters. Writing and Publishing Mentoring is available for would-be-writers, writers seeking to publish, or those interested in or already working in the publishing industry (as an editor, book/ Ebook producer or marketer) to discuss their vision, challenges, and specific questions with an experienced mentor. Participants interested in writing a book should submit an outline for a manuscript to discuss as a starting point.


Pieter Kwant is the director of Langham Literature and a literary agent, The Piquant Agency. He has over 40 years’ experience in the Christian book trade covering distribution, international sales and publishing. Since 2000 he has worked with Langham Partnership as their Literature Programme Director. As he met with Majority World scholars and pastors he was challenged by the failures of the ‘from the west to the rest’ model of book origination and distribution. Since then he has overseen and managed six major regional one-volume Bible commentaries written by theologians from each region in the world. He started imprints including HippoBooks (Africa), the Langham Global Library, Langham Preaching Resources and Langham Monographs to give voice to writers from the Majority World.
