2020 will be the ninth year of the Kiwi young writer program with Christian Today New Zealand.
Each year there seems to be new young Kiwis (18-30) joining the team who are published once every five weeks (a Cycle consists of 5 weeks), 10 articles for the year.
This is our Kiwi team making it all happen
There are three coordinators who send out reminder for each Kiwi young writer's due date.
Weeks 1 and 2 - Jessica McPherson from Christchurch
Week 3 - Jessica Knell from Auckland
Week 4 (NZ senior writers)
Week 5 - Mussita Ng from Wellington
Kevin Park from Auckland

All these people engage in the Kiwi young writer program so as to ensure the entire system runs smoothly.
Kiwi young writers are asked to write a 600-900 word 'Comment' article – that is you writing about something on your heart, a Christian view on an event or drama. It is not a devotional or a sermon.
What it is like writing
It is fun. It is serious. It is disciplining. It’s great having your article read around the world. It is once every 5 weeks. You’re part of a team. We need more young Kiwis 18-30 years of age. We have annual; conference with writing Awards.
