Sophia Sinclair the Press Service International 'Basil Sellers' 2015 New Zealand winner interview by the Australian Missionary News IPTV with anchorman Jeremy Dover is now released on its YouTube channel.
Producer Belinda Croft had to be creative as the interview surroundings at the 2015 Young Writers Annual Conference held at the Petersham Baptist Church was full of pitfalls – a windy day, directly under the Sydney airport flight path and the halls and rooms being occupied.
It proved to be one of those celebrated outdoors events where everything that could go wrong, did so, yet at the end of the day through some creative editing and production we have quite a reasonable outcome viz 'audio and visual'.
Sophia Sinclair tells her story
Jeremy Dover leads Sophia Sinclair to tell her story in her own words within the limited time frame yet her experiences with NZ National Broadcasting and NZ CMS had to be curtailed due to the wind and aircraft elements on the day.
Nonetheless Sophia's story is picked up in her relocation from Christchurch New Zealand to Sydney Australia with her husband Andrew and toddler son, as Andrew is accepted to read (study) Theology at the Sydney Missionary Bible College.
The big move happened in late January 2015 along with family 'student' accommodation at CBMC and then being initiated into the editing role for Press Service International young writers program the third week of February.
Here Sophia Sinclair explains what she does as the editor, what are her goals, how she communicates with each young writer, the process of the editing and finally how that package of articles at the end of each week are sent to Christian Today with publishing dates for up to 15 articles.

The Australian Missionary News IPTV kicked off after Dr Mark Tronson's 14 years in Moruya (south coast of NSW) ministering at the Timeout in Moruya respite facility for Australian Institute of Sport elite athletes. He had retired after 17 years as the Australian cricket team chaplain.
This new arena fitted very neatly into his ministry portfolios. The PlayLists are the easiest way to find specific videos.
Dr Tronson's four children were off their hands, his wife Delma and he went on the road (as it were) combining their Travelling and Country Town Tours ministry with pre-arranged interviews. Delma interviewed sporting luminaries such as Netball's Susan Fuhrmann, Softball's Kylie Cronk, Christian activist Jenny Baxter .....
