About Your Manuscript and You
Have you ever wondered what criteria editors use when they’re reviewing your manuscript?

Terri Kalfas began her career as a journalist, working as a newspaper reporter, freelance writer, managing editor, and editor. She moved to Christian publishing in 1987. Since then she has held positions as editor, director of publishing, and publisher.
In addition to helping develop Bible studies, she has been on faculty at writers conferences across the US and in Canada speaking, teaching workshops and continuing classes, critiquing manuscripts, helping writers polish their work, and coaching those who find themselves discouraged and questioning whether they’re even pursuing the right dream.
Her love has always been to develop biblically-based resources that challenge, encourage, teach, equip, and entertain Christians young and old in their personal journeys.
