In 2021 the Kiwi young writers who have been standing alone in operations for the past three years finally become independent from Press Service International.
What does this mean
Nothing changes in the operations program. The coodinators and editor and photo selectors, the facebook remain the same. None of that changes.
The 2021 Internationals Young Writer leadership team
The NZ senior writers are in a different category and are part of the broader senior writer group that includes Australia, New Zealand and Internationals.
New Kiwi young writers
New Kiwi young writers are directed to Esther Koh – this is the entry point. The current young writers are placed in Weeks 1-3
Two ‘other’ areas
There are two separate areas that the Kiwi young writers retain a working relationship with Press Service International.
First – Christian Today -
Christian Today is a separate entity, the publisher. The Kiwi young writers are currently published in Weeks 1, 2 and 3 of the 5 Week Cycle that Christian Today functions. The internal New Zealand Stand Alone operations have no connection with these ongoing Christian Today publishing scenarios. The PSI daily publishing document is retained so all the young writers get their publishing day.
Second - Annual Awards
The current program of annual awards are being retained by the 2021 three separate young writer groups – Australia, New Zealand and the Internationals. There are ongoing procedures in place along with panellists, statisticians and awards.
Kiwi young people are welcome to connect with Esther Koh
