PSI is is in the process of expanding this to an initial group of 5 young writers from New Zealand (age 18-30).
This is a ministry of Well-Being Australia. Chairman Dr Mark Tronson was the Australian cricket team chaplain for 17 years 2001 Ret., developed Life After Cricket 2001, receiptent of the Olympic Ministry Medal, Christian Today Theological Advisor, Columnist, author of 24 books and established respite facilities for elite athletes (Australian Institute of Sport) in Moruya and Tweed Heads and a separate facility on the Whitsundays for missionaries.
"We are not necessarily seeking New Zealand theology students. For example, the 28 young writers from Australia are bankers, the trades, home makers, university students, professionals, IT people, even a young scientist - a real mix. They provide a remarkably broad spectrum," Dr Tronson explained.
PSI has a very good volunteer team of editors to help where needed. Ultimately PSI wants to see a NZ co-ordinator for these young writers from New Zealand.
Dr Tronson is seeking young New Zealanders willing to "have-a-go" rather than expert writers. He asks they look at the web site (above) and check-out the sorts of articles written by the young Australians.
PSI provides each NZ young writer with a Voice (published monthly), along with a web presence (an archive of their articles as a CV).
