Publishing abroad isn’t the answer


I read Silas Nyanchwani’s article “8 Lessons writers need to learn” on Sunday, December 30, 2012 with keen interest.

As a publisher and author, I found some of his advice very articulate and worth the ink but some of it may have been given out of a limited understanding of publishing in the global environment and viewing publishing as a social enterprise as opposed to an economic one.

It is correct to advise writers to find their own writing styles. The lesson on self-publishing was spot on and so was the idea of writers, publishers and other local players joining hands to promote local books to boost readership.
