It’s now down to 44 days before LittWord 2022, the Global Conference of Christian Publishing, which will take place in Siófok, Hungary, on 24 – 29 April 2022. Organised by Media Associates International (MAI) and titled ‘Stronger Together – Publishing Hope Beyond Crisis’, it is expected to bring together more than 200 Christian Communicators from around the world to gain fresh vision, creativity, and intensive training to make biblical truth accessible to readers today.
Men and women from 94 countries have participated in LittWorld since the conference began in 1986. Many Christian African writers and publishers trace the growth of their publishing journeys to these conferences. Many point to the Nairobi (2012) and Singapore (2018) conferences as turning points that led to the books, magazines and publishing houses they have since birthed.
We have now received the good news that the Covid-19 related visa restrictions to Hungary have been lifted, opening the door to those who had been held back from registering. The keynote speaker will be award-winning author Philip Yancey, whose books have sold more than 17 million copies in English and have been translated into more than 50 languages worldwide. On offer will be more than 40 workshops led by seasoned international professionals. The conference cost is $945 and $1,245 for single and double occupancy, respectively, covering the cost of five nights lodging, conference coffee/tea breaks, conference registration and materials. More details can be found on the MAI website here.
What an excellent and timely opportunity to join other publishing professionals, old and new, from around the world, in this long-awaited return to physical interaction to fellowship and learn together and be re-envisioned afresh for the task entrusted to us of sharing the good news through the written word.
